    To avoid tourists, head north to Nolita.

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

      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?
