We've done best foodie neighborhood, but I thought it would be fun to narrow it down to a single best block. I'd love to hear about some I haven't explored yet, especially in Chinatown.
My vote is for the block on Bleecker with Murray's, Faico's, Amy's Bread and that fish place. I think the excellent quality and variety makes up for the fact that none of them are actually restaurants (tho Cornelia is not far away!).
Cornelia and Carmine Streets would also separately make the top of my list.
And there are a couple big blocks of St Mark's that might have enough variety to make up for a lack of excellent quality.
Can variety and quantity make up for quality?
