1. Scarpetta

The Scarpetta breadbasket is the king of all breadbaskets, a literal font of carb, crumb, and accompaniments. Beneath the white napkin you'll find house-made filone, a rustic Italian bread; a whole wheat focaccia topped with rosemary and sea salt; baby ciabattini rolls with the perfect amount of chew; and unbelievably, Stromboli!! Yes, this very chic Beverly Hills kitchen doles out slices of calzone-like Stromboli, stuffed with smoked mozzarella, salami and roasted cherry tomatoes. For free. This generous spread is served with mascarpone butter, eggplant caponata, and citrus-herb olive oil. Keep the gluten gluttony going with an order of chef Scott Conant's tomato-basil spaghetti, maybe the best thing to happen to the humble noodle since Marco Polo. In the Montage Hotel, 225 N. Canon Dr., Los Angeles; (310) 860-7970.
