Little Italy destinations

Phil_A_Mignon | May 26, 2009 11:16 AM

15 relatives of my father-in-law are coming from Italy to visit the family here in southeastern PA for a wedding. My father-in-law is planning a trip to NY during their stay to see Lady Liberty and Little Italy. I'm from Bergen County NJ and somewhat familiar with Manhattan, so he's bringing me along as a quasi-guide. We're piling into a huge party van and heading in on a Wednesday. I've been to Little Italy a few times, but a while ago. I understand that culinarily speaking, Little Italy is mostly a red sauce district. While I don't have any major problem with that (as my father-in-law and his family are southern Italian), I prefer to lead them somewhere for a meal and atmosphere that isn't so "Goodfellas-esque." Something a bit more upscale and not so red-and-white checked tablecloth and straw-wrapped chianti bottle. But it has to be in Little Italy. I would love any suggestions.
