1 Fifth Avenue at East 8th Street
Thank god for Otto. It's just a stone's throw away from my apartment. When I'm feeling weary after a long day at work, tell me--what's better than twirling my fork around long strands of al dente spaghetti that's been coated in a silky, yolky carbonara sauce and punctuated with salty bits of pancetta? This beautiful Mario Batali creation is a no-brainer at $10.
