NoLIta (for North of Little Italy) might retain many of the same features as nearby neighborhoods SoHo and Little Italy, but has a distinctly charming vibe all its own. The area’s cozy cafés, stylish boutiques and burgeoning bar scene make it a destination. Visit to browse the wares of independent designers and sit streetside at acclaimed restaurants and lounges. On a warm, bright day, few Manhattan neighborhoods offer better people-watching.
These two neighborhoods offer a rich Italian heritage, as well as excellent shopping, dining and nightlife.
No diner was ever so attentive to detail as Egg Shop is, with its fresh herbs and citrus floating in water carafes; homemade hot sauce to sprinkle on local, organic egg dishes; bourbon ketchup for crunchy, puck-size hash browns; and onion aioli to spread on a fat burger topped with Black Forest–style bacon, sharp Shelburne cheddar, tomato jam, fresh-pickled jalapeños and—of course—a fried egg.
