Scarpetta's Chef Jorge Espinoza - Though Mexican by heritage, Espinoza’s true passion lies in Italian cuisine. A butcher turned high-end chef, Espinoza grew up in Gueretaro, learning the art of cuisine from his parents, both excellent cooks. He began his stateside cooking career in New York City, eventually linking up with chef Scott Conant in 2003. Along with Antonello Paganuzzi, they would go on to open the first location of Scarpetta in 2008, an imprint that would eventually expand to multiple cities, including Philadelphia in 2016.
