Babbo lunch or Scarpetta dinner for birthday?

qcm10026 | Apr 3, 2013 08:11 AM

Taking out gf for birthday meal. Was only able to snag Babbo for lunch. Also got reservation for dinner at Scarpetta.

Which one should I choose?

Any good recommendations from Babbo's lunch menu? Will definitely get beef cheek ravioli, grilled octopus (which seems to be an entree for lunch instead of app). Any other appetizer or pasta/entree recommendations? Unfortunately the 1pound lobster spaghetti seems to be unavailable for lunch.

At Scarpetta, was thinking the octopus, polenta, and maybe short ribs for apps, then spaghetti and something else for entree (maybe short rib pasta).

Trying to figure out whether Babbo lunch food > Scarpetta dinner food for bday meal. Thanks all! Really appreciate it!
