Authentic Italian cuisine meets quality, local ingredients at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Scarpetta Miami Beach inside Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Celebrity chef Scott Conant leads the restaurant, which also has outposts in cities including New York and Beverly Hills. Rich flavors dominate the menu, with dishes such as creamy truffled polenta with wild mushrooms or braised beef short ribs with farro risotto. Pair the Italian fare with a curated flight of wines and dessert — think chocolate zeppole with candied hazelnuts. The decadent food is served in nautical-inspired space — the Miami Beach restaurant has a wraparound veranda with views of the Atlantic Ocean.
