Best Pastas in the Country
Carbs may no longer be considered one of the four food groups anymore, but pasta is still one of the best comfort foods in the world. From Italian-American red sauce to Roman carbonara and cacio e pepe, here are the 98 best pastas in the United States.
Spicy King Crab Spaghetti at RPM Italian (Chicago and Washington, D.C.)
This Chicago Italian restaurant — with a second location in Washington, D.C. — is backed by Giuliana and Bill Rancic, but RPM Italian doesn’t rely on celebrity associations and its dining room packed with beautiful people — each is a destination-worthy restaurant. The food, especially the pasta, is really darn good even without the reality star endorsement. Chef-partner Doug Psaltis serves dozens of fresh pastas, made in-house every day, including really great homestyle Bolognese and pomodoro, but the one that stands out most in flavor — and aesthetic — is the spicy king crab with jet black squid ink spaghetti and vibrant Fresno chile.
