Not American, nor Italian, but both of them combined. Little Italy aims to bring over to “Mainhattan” the feeling of the Italian-immigrant-style restaurants that can be found aplenty in New York city. Little Italy belongs to the same group as the trendy snack-bar/tattoo-shop Legends, which has set the bar for quality standards for trendy, and edgy spaces, which open doors for eclectic crowds.
Drop by if you are in the mood for a tasty and familiar bite, in a relaxed and trendy environment. Pizzas, salads and sandwiches are some of the treats you can choose from. I personally lose myself over the grilled veggie sandwich, sided with crispy fries and a big Apfelschorle (typically German, a mixture of apple juice and sparkling water).
If you have had a hard Saturday night, you will probably be sleeping late on Sunday. Drag yourself over to the underground and take the U4 until Höhestrasse. On Sundays, Little Italy offers a brunch buffet that will reboot your energy. Lasagna, frittata, a selection of cold meats and cheeses, grilled vegetables, risotto, cereal, bread, focaccia and even cake. It is open until 15:00 so you can make sure to make the most of it. Afterwards you can enjoy what remains of your lazy afternoon with a walk around the nearby Günthersburgpark (check the Günthersburgpark article).
Heighten your senses and enjoy!
