We are unapologetically biased in our restaurant selections. Our listings feature those spots which serve healthful food in a pleasant atmosphere with quality service. We love to eat; we love to feel good about our bodies; and we know how closely these two things are related--so what you will find here are restaurants where the food tastes as good as it is good for you. If you have a yen from something else, or want to find a more thorough listing of restaurants in town, we recommend www.zagats.com, and The New York Times on-line directory.
Above the Financial District and encroaching on shrinking Little Italy and the Lower East Side is New York Cityís expanding Chinatown--rapidly increasing in both size and population. Chinatown is a wonderful place to meander about. Everyone in your group will notice different things. On a recent visit with my family, my husband noticed that the streets bend, and the buildings bend with them. My older daughter noticed fish and dehydrated things in markets that she wanted to take home and examine under her microscope. And my little one marveled at lots of colorful kitsch: Hello Kitty and others. You can begin your exploration online here or on foot at the intersection of Mott and Canal.
