Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the Los Angeles Times. This week on Good Food he reviews Scopa Italian Roots, a fairly new addition to Venice that he describes as "part Italian restaurant and part cocktail lounge." He recommends the roasted romanesco, fried calamari, arancini and veal chop Milanese. The cocktail menu is also a must.
