Go for the Mac Bar!

We had a great dinner here. Loved the side-walk care feel (even though we ate inside because it was a little breezy outside). We ordered the Lobster Mac and the Margarita Mac and they were both delicious. Very attentive service, nice atmosphere.

I came to Delicatessen on a Friday night after work with visitors from out of town. The weather was perfect, so we chose a table outside on the Lafayette Street side of the restaurant. This restaurant is a perfect place for after work food/drinks and people watching. The service was just okay, but the food and atmosphere were excellent! I... More

Excellent place to relax after sightseeing in this lively neigbourhood. The place is very open and the atmosphere is very lively. The cocktails are great, price is reasonable and the food is great. I would truly recommend it if you are wondering around little Itlay and Soho.

I first visited Delicatessen in 2009. Six years later, the quality of the food only seemed to have gone up. Signature dishes like the Tuna Tartare, Meatballs and Cheeseburger Spring Rolls are to die for. Also the all-day long breakfast is great! Definitely worth a visit after your shopping spree in SOHO

This is an attractive and trendy place on the corner of Prince and Lafayette, all white and light gray decor, great for people watching even when you are sitting inside as one side of the long dining room was completely open with no walls. We were on our way to Chinatown and decided had to stop here for lunch because... More

I went here for lunch with my teenage daughter. We had a wonderful meal. The food is outstanding. We sat at an outdoor table and people watched while we ate. We were lucky to see Bradley Cooper walking down the street. I ordered a turkey sandwich. This was not your ordinary turkey sandwich. The turkey was delicious and served warm... More

Stopped by for lunch, were told it would be half hour wait so we said we would come back. Went back after 25 mins and and to wait another half hour for the table, then also waited almost an hour for our food. Burger and mac n cheese both great, but the annoyingly slow service ruined it for me. Would... More

The menu includes innovative cuisine as well as comfortable favorites in a modern setting. The food was tasty and the service was friendly and attentive, even on a busy Saturday night, A little spendy but not crazy. One of the better meals we had in our weeklong visit.

The title says it all. I just hated everything about it. The food was basically fancy junk food--I think they call it "comfort food". The music was so pervasive and blaring that I couldn't speak to my wife comfortably.

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
