You may have heard of architect Richard Meier’s West Village glass apartment towers, renowned for their famous residents, sleek design, and views of the Hudson. Now you can eat in one, at celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Perry Street restaurant. With a white and glass interior that mirrors the façade of the building, the atmosphere sets expectations for pared-down, modern cuisine, and the menu delivers. From Asian fusion seafood to French-inspired veal chops to simple, flavor-packed cheeseburgers, there’s a wide, interesting range. And you may eat next to a star.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This old-fashioned place in the Testaccio neighborhood, complete with grumpy waiters, makes no concessions to tourists. The decor, including the murals of ancient Roman scenes, hasn’t changed for about 50 years—and neither have the extraordinary pastas: carbonara, <em>amatriciana</em> and the not-for-beginners <em>pajata</em> (made with calf intestines).
