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; and unbelievably, Stromboli! Yes, this chic Beverly Hills kitchen doles out slices of calzone-like Stromboli, stuffed with smoked mozzarella, salami and roasted cherry tomatoes. For free. 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. 225 N. Canon Drive, Beverly Hills.
