The Ponte, Los Angeles, CA

The Ponte Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur St├ęphane Bombet (Faith & Flower, Hanjip) and chef Scott Conant (Scarpetta) have opened The Ponte, a modern Italian restaurant in the former space of Terrine. (In Conant's hometown of Waterbury, Connecticut, there's a community of expats from the Italian town of Pontelandolfo nicknamed "Pontes," hence the restaurant's name.) Conant's famous spaghetti pomodoro is, of course, on the menu, alongside charcuterie, antipasti, wood-fired pizzas and dishes like roasted lamb neck with raisins, smoked eggplant, goat cheese and pine nut crumble. The beverage program highlights Italian aperitivo- and digestivo-themed cocktails, including a Negroni flight.
