Noodling Around

Where are the best noodles in America? Right here (slurping permitted)

Spaghetti Carbonara

Left to our own devices, many of our meals would be pasta. Noodles are comforting, infinitely satisfying and nearly as varied as Lady Gaga's costume choices. Soba, pici, linguine, ramen, cellophane noodles—we could write a book (in fact, more than a few people have). No matter the noodle variety, it should complement its surroundings, whether that's a sauce, broth or something else entirely.

So for the nights when you don't feel like making a killer kale carbonara or Roy Choi's upgraded instant ramen at home, here's where can you find the best bowls of pasta in nine cities across the U.S.
