We are headed to NYC for the week before Christmas with our 9 y.o. son. While he likes good food like his parents we would also like to show him sights like Chinatown and Little Italy. Does anyone have a restaurant recommendation that is quality in those neighborhoods? We are foodies and will be dining at some better restaurants (Laonda Verde and such) during our visit. Thanks!!

  1. For Chinatown, if you are into authentic Chinese food, you're in luck! It just depends what you're craving. Noodle soup? Roast meats? Cantonese seafood? Clay pot rice? Soup dumplings? Etc. If you can tell us any specific genre of Chinese cooking you'd be interested in, we can make better suggestions.

    Near Little Italy, it's best to do a walk though and then go dine in an adjacent neighborhood, like Nolita or Soho. What cuisines are you thinking of? There's lots of good restaurants within walking distance, so the constraints will end up being your preferred price range, cuisine, ability to get a reservation, etc.

    1. Dim Sum Go Go (your son might enjoy the "burgers" with taro fries)
      Shanghai Cafe (soup dumplings)
      Parm - now open for dinner (Nolita)
