I simply cannot get enough of this neighborhood. Why? Here are my top three reasons why we love Little Italy:
- Places to eat for everyone. Family friendly options where kids are welcome, or enjoy a lunch with your best girlfriends, or a date night with your significant other. Locally owned and operated. Upscale options, but not pretentious.
- The Little Italy Mercato. Fresh produce and flowers, amazing selection of culinary delights (the Sea Salt!), live music, and two hours of free parking. This is the place to go for unique gift items for people on your list who love food, love to cook, or have just about everything. I am also in love with Lizzie B. jewelry — amazing, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.
- The history. It’s almost like you’re stepping through time, yet there are signs of an evolving neighborhood. Evolving in a positive direction, and a model for what an urban neighborhood and community should be. They’ve also launched a mobile app for both iPhone & Android. Learn more here.
I hope one day we can live here, but until then, we’ll come to visit. What do you love about Little Italy? Leave your comments below.
