Little Italy Meets Chinatown

13 06 2010

We finally made our way out to Little Italy the last time we were in NYC.  Unfortunately we had to choose the hottest, most humid day ever to make the trip.

Even though it was great to walk through the pedestrian streets with the “Welcome to Little Italy” signs, the decorative flowers, the sidewalk patios and little markets with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto, we really made the trip to visit the infamous pizzeria, Lombardi’s.  Which boasts itself as the ‘birthplace of new york style pizza’ with a coal-fired oven.

Very good pizza.  Although, I’m not going to lie, I think I might like Patsy’s better…

On to Chinatown, which pretty much looked like any other Chinatown in any other city.  Lots of sidewalk seafood displays.  Lots of fresh fruit markets (it just happened to be lychee season so I finally got to show Nathan what Lychee look like).

The one thing that stood out.  The chubby ginger cat that sits below the fish display, looking pleasantly full.  And I got a testimonial from a local that this cat eats some crazy stuff!

Love the cat’s description, guess I’ll need one of those too.

maybe you should start with a ‘chubby ginger cat’ before you commit to a ‘chubby ginger kid’
