Go List: New York City
When chef Michael White opened Convivio, he worked extra-hard on the pasta. "Don't believe people who say pasta is simple," he says. "It's incredibly complex." White's is outstanding, and it's one of the city's best deals: Diners can get it on the $59 four-course menu. We loved: Tomato-pancetta tortelli with butter-pepper sauce.
