In a city that’s littered with Italian eateries, there’s a sparkling gem
La Scala is a modern, fine dining Italian eatery with a sleek open kitchen and dining room concept. The dining room is cozy and encased in rich wood, with touches of black, glass and accents of red. At the heart of the restaurant sits the kitchen, providing diners with an open view of the mealtime theatrics. The staff works diligently and with utter precision.
Shortly after ordering you’ll be met with an amuse bouche, on this particular evening it was a porcini mouse. The light-as-air mouse melts in your mouth creating a burst of rich porcini flavor that’s juxtaposed an acidic bite.
If there was ever too much of a good thing, this salad of succulent lobster, fresh asparagus and thinly shaven black truffle is certainly not it. It’s undeniably over the top but the balance between rich and fresh is spot on. If it weren’t for the sleek digs I would have licked this bowl clean.
For a traditional flair opt for the Bufala E Prosciutto. A bed of thinly sliced ribbons of salty, 24-month aged Parma ham is topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella. This dish is typically served with mozzarella however I subbed burrata, and let me tell you, this pairing is divine. Once the burrata is sliced it creates a creamy sauce that coats the layers of irresistible ham.
If there is one dish to come for it’s the quasi-pizza, Schiacciatina. An herbed, cracker-thin pizza crust that’s sliced in half and layered with fresh mascarpone cheese, Parma ham, rocket, and juicy sliced tomato. This sandwich is unpretentious but provides the complete balance of crunchy, salty, savory and fresh. One bite and you’ll be hooked.
There’s no doubt that the star of La Scala is the food. Every plate that emerges from kitchen has been carefully constructed. The chefs’ balance of texture, flavor, and upmost quality creates a dining experience that is unparalleled in a city that’s littered with Italian eateries.
At this price point it might be a bit steep for your average night out but when you’re looking for a top notch experience go no further than La Scala, it is sure surpass your expectations.
