Scott Conant Likes Miami...
The famous spaghetti heads way north.
The people in New York City really took to Scarpetta. So then I decided to spread the love a little bit, and we opened up another Scarpetta in Miami Beach, and the people seemed to like it there as well.
Miami is really beautiful, T-Dot. You should check it out sometime."
That's Scott Conant talking about our fair city in an open letter he published to the people of Toronto "or, "T-Dot", as I've learned you're affectionately called". He's opening up a Scarpetta in that city's Thompson Hotel, and wanted to introduce himself. A reporter in Toronto Life thought Scott was being condescending, but it doesn't appear that way to me.
