Dear Scarpetta

How is it possible that you open your phone lines a month in advance and somehow, magically, prime seating, 7-9, is already booked up for a month from today? If I asked for a reservation for 10 people, maybe I would understand. 2 people! I've eaten here more than 10 times since the day you opened. I was there the week you opened, when it wasn't even full. I know you've become super popular since then (because your pretty boy chef is off opening up restaurants he will never cook at) and I am not asking for special treatment. You tell me to call me a month in advance and I followed that. Not only will I never eat at Scott's restaurant's again (1 because it is impossible to get a normal reservation at Scarpetta and 2 because is Faustina still open- that was a bad meal) but I will burn Scott's cookbook, as I have already memorized his tomato sauce receipe. By the way, you may want to find someone new to answer your phones. The women I got was a big C. apologize for the punctuation errors, but as you can see, I'm pissed.
