Saturday lunch in Chinatown/Little Italy area

This Saturday. Would appreciate recommendations. Want to avoid the tourist havens.

  1. To avoid tourists, head north to Nolita.

      Great advice, Nolita. We found Cafe Gitane. It lived up to everything we read about it.

      Cafe Gitane
      113 Jane St, New York, NY 10014

    2. While Little Italy these days is pretty much wall to wall tourists traps, Chinatown is definitely not. What are you interested in? Would dim sum fit the bill or do you want more of a full meal?
