Chinatown, you can also do better, try Uptown...Chef Ho's 89th & 2nd..
While you're Uptown grab the best Hot Dog you'll ever have...Papaya King..86th and 3rd.
Deli...no place better than the 2nd Avenue Deli...at Turdy, Thurd and Thurd (33rd Street off 3rd Ave).
Feel free not to take my advice...you'll be sorry.
I agree, Little Italy IS just for tourists. You should go there for dessert, pastry and cappuccino. There is a small gelateria around Spring St. and Mulberry that is great - the owners are young and from Italy. For pizza, not close to the best in the world - someone must not have been to Italy and New Haven, for that matter.
Bar Piti is on the corner of 6th and Bleecker. It's a casual restaurant and the owner is from Florence, Italy. Excellent and not overpriced. Just my two cents...
