Miami Snapshots Part 3

The purpose of our Miami trip was for a bachelorette weekend. Three of us flew in on Friday and two more met up with us on Saturday. Once all five of us were together, we started the real fun.
There was a free drink check-in offer through Yelp at our hotel so we met up in the bar before dinner.

The free drink offer was for a glass of prosecco.
After a quick cheers and a sip of our bubbles, we headed over to the Fontainebleau to dine at Scarpetta.
We were asked to take a seat in the lounge while the staff went to check on our table.
We were led through a few rooms to (what I think is) the prettiest part of the restaurant.
Isn't that gorgeous?
Just like the New York location, we were started off with a few different breads and dips: sourdough, ciabatta, focaccia, and stromboli with olive oil, eggplant tapenade, and mascarpone butter.
For my main course, I ordered the ultra famous spaghetti with basil and tomato. It was phenomenal. Alton Brown said it would be his 'last meal' choice (if presented with that sort of scenario) and rightly so. The fresh pasta was so delicate and chewy, the sauce was a perfect balance of sweet, acidic, and savory, and the fragrant basil made this taste oh-so-Italian.
It doesn't get much better than this.
The bride-to-be ordered the raviolini with corn but she didn't end up liking it too much. It was delicious but she was disappointed. One of the staff overheard and asked if he could bring her something else. She ended up getting the spaghetti. Who could blame her?
L got the short rib agnolotti with bone marrow. It was super savory and delicious.
JR got the scialatelli with lobster. The pasta was so good and the lobster was cooked perfectly.
JL got the scallops which were cooked until perfectly tender. I was impressed.
For dessert, we shared the amadei chocolate cake with almond gelato. The cake was slightly disappointing - considering I was in heaven both times I enjoyed it in New York - but it was still yummy.
After dinner, we touched up our makeup and then had an impromptu bridal party photoshoot.
D pinned on the veil that I DIY-ed for her.
Don't these photos look like an ad for some cheesy Bravo or TLC show? The Bridal Party, coming soon to a television near you.
Cheers, bitches!
After the photo frenzy, we hopped in a limo and headed to an open bar at Barezzito.
After we each had more than our fair share of drinks, we hopped back in our limo and headed to Mansion.
One of my favorite DJ duos ever, Myon and Shane 54 was spinning so I was in heaven.
It was an amazing night. Congratulations, D!
xoxo.
