Where to Eat in Nolita

Nolita’s dining scene is the envy of many a Manhattan neighborhood and attracts hungry New Yorkers from all over town. Sample pizza from the longstanding Lombardi’s, which has been serving wood-fired pies since 1905, or from the by-the-slice Prince Street Pizza, where there’s almost always a line. Parm, meanwhile, dishes out Italian-American sandwiches while Emilio’s Ballato attracts a celebrity clientele with its Italian classics. Italian is far from the only option though; enjoy cuisines that range from casual Middle Eastern falafel at Taïm to Western Chinese dishes at Xi'an Famous Foods and tacos at La Esquina.
