Top restaurant recommendations from locals

“Vibrant Chinatown is a densely populated neighborhood that draws foodies and tourists to its many Chinese and Southeast Asian restaurants for dumplings, pork buns and hand-pulled noodles. The busy sidewalks are packed with souvenir stores, bubble tea shops, and markets selling everything from fresh and dried fish to herbs and spices. Locals hang out in leafy Columbus Park for Tai Chi, chess and mahjong.”

Italian Restaurant
“Little Italy welcomes a heavily tourist crowd to its high concentration of souvenir shops and traditional Italian eateries and bakeries. Tenement buildings, once home to the immigrants who settled the area in the late 1800s, line the narrow streets. Mulberry Street, the main thoroughfare, turns into a pedestrian mall on summer weekends. The area celebrates its heritage each September at the busy San Gennaro festival.”

Australian Restaurant
“SEE ALL SLIDES 3 OF 55 Dudleys This Australian hotspot owned by Steve Aioki serves up all-day breakfast, already making it one of our favorite LES spots. Yes, there's the requisite avocado toast and burgers, but also Brussels sprouts that might convert even the biggest veggie hater. Plus, it's filled with Instagram-worthy neon signs you can snap even if you're swinging by the new take-out counter. ”

English Restaurant
“You don't have to fight about where to eat: The Fat Radish is great for the vegetarians but placates the carnivores with a killer bacon cheeseburger and pork chop. Your group will also agree on the gorgeously bright, all-white space, which perfectly complements the delicious food.”

Dim Sum Restaurant
“Chinatown’s oldest restaurant serves up fresh and consistently delicious dim sum, ordered off a menu rather than a cart. The dining room, dating back to 1920, is a relic. Order the pork buns, the sticky rice in lotus leaves, the shrimp & chive dumplings, and any of the rice rolls. During peak dim sum hours (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) there may be a wait, but it’s never unbearable.”
