Looked very plain outside but the inside is tastefully arranged with comfy seating. Service is very prompt. Cocktails are strong! Ordered reuben sandwich, burger/fries, and Brussels sprouts/potatoes. Reuben was so big I could only eat half, Brussels sprouts tasted great. Will venture here again, as it is in a nice location when shopping. In summer they have a lot of... More

I went there because of the truffle french fries. It was my first time. Excelent. The best french fries ever. I ordered also a classic burguer with cheese and mushrooms, and it was very very good also.

We stumbled across this restaurant in Soho. It's really good and is highly recommended. The food selection is good and the speed the food comes out is great. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The quality of the food is excellent and to be able to get a good meal at 9.30/10.00 at night is terrific. A good place... More

Food was good. We tried eggs benedict and texan eggs benedict. The guys on yhe staff should be a little more welcoming. They were indeed very professional but a little smile would create a better feedback.

I had looked up restaurants in advance, and I'm so glad I did. We wouldn't have happened upon this restaurant accidentally, and it was just so good. My husband LOVED his fish sandwich, and I loved the avocado toast. It was the perfect lunch to eat after we had arrived to NYC. The atmosphere was great. I'm sure it would... More

I ALWAYS come here after a long night of partying. I always order the two eggs any style (scrambled) with turkey sausage, and a glass of pineapple juice. There are something for everyone on their various menu. Make sure to try the truffle and parmesan fries, they are to die for!

Delicatessen was a chance choice when hungry in SoHo. We arrived just a little before the lunch peak and they became very busy. There was obviously repeat trade. The food was, indeed, very good but the demeanour of the staff (although pleasant) and the ambience suggested a high opinion of self which was only partially justified. My chicken sandwich was...

On a rainy Saturday afternoon, this place was an awesome find! 1. We did a reverse order and started with a shake which was an amaretto milkshake with Oreo crumbles! WOW! Awesome 2. Split a hamburger which melted in our mouths! 3. The Mac and cheese was divine and probably too much for 2 considering we got a shake and... More

It's a bit expensive about $15-20 per plate but worth it. The food was great after a long walk and very good. The lobster roll was okay didn't like the bread much but the actual lobster was good at $23. The eggs Benedict were also delicious $21. You must try the truffle fries! Service was fast and very friendly.

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
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.
