Superstar chef Mario Batali usually opens his famous restaurants in major cities, but this terrific enoteca-pizzeria is located in a quiet suburb about 50 minutes outside New York City. Unexpected toppings include meatballs with jalapeños and Fontina cheese, and burrata with pancetta and chile oil, as well as luxe combinations like the guanciale pie with black truffles and an oozing egg.

Just off Passeig de Gracia, the city’s Art Nouveau shopping street, Tapaç 24 is great for a breakfast of <em>bocadillos</em> (sandwiches) and cafe con leche, and for late-night meals of fried duck eggs with wild mushrooms.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
