Let the battle begin, Batali or Conant? If you have been to both, please weigh the pro's and con's. I do know that Scarpetta is still new and doesn't quite have that 'following' that maybe a devout Batali patron might feel, but I think the food at both places takes the customer to a new level of Italian cuisine that cannot be found anywhere else. Overall dining experience should be evaluated (food, atmosphere, wine list, pricing, ability to score a table, etc.)
I'm just interested to hear feedback, thanks.
