This is the only other place in New York City, and the only one that is still in business today, where eggplant parmigiana dish is what it supposed to be—a celebration of fresh tomato sauce and parmigiana making love to eggplant—without any unnecessary extras. Love...More

Eggs benedict was excellent with a couple of perfect poached eggs. Coffee was the best I had in my time in NYC. Girlfriend also very much enjoyed her smoked salmon dish. Be warned it's another 'cash only' place!

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,

I believe that it is, but the front windows open to the street. On a nice day, it can be really lovely.
