The Upper West Side is one of the city's best people-watching zones, as denizens and visitors stride up and down its broad boulevards—well, there's at least one actual boulevard, and that's Broadway. Anyway, in fine weather, an Italian restaurant with the quizzical name of Trattoria Machiavelli (there's a tortured explanation on the menu, but I'm not buying it) puts hordes of tables out on the canopied sidewalk, where you can enjoy the bounty that flows from its kitchen: exemplary small pizzas, beet ravioli, and a buffalo mozzarella salad. 519 Columbus Avenue, 212-724-2658, (10024)
