It's a bit dark and dim when you look in, and the lighting keeps it that way. Decor is peeling wallpaper, old photos, laminate tables and old wooden chairs but service is fast, efficient and friendly and food is plentiful and reasonably priced. The slightly...More

Take a seat at the bar and have a glass of wine and the meatballs, with extra bread. Watch the Prince Street world go by and have a chat with whomever is seated next to you. Just great.

I think that Fanelli's is great fun and something that has been taken out of last century New York that is so refreshing after all these minimalistic/cool/trendy places. I adore the decor so....yesterday and the sandwiches were good a the staff friendly and fun.

Nice doors with cut glass design invited me into the small pub, with wood bar and tile floors. Tin ceiling completed the "look" but it's genuine- café established in 1847. Food choices rang the gauntlet; I chose grilled Portobello with red pepper sandwich and caramelized...More

destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to
