Little bite To Eat

Described as a "sliver-sized Noho snack bar redefining fast food," bite, at 335 Lafayette, has to be the city's skinniest restaurant. I have always been intrigued with this bizarre wedge of a retail space that is so thin, it is barely one person wide - click here for more photos. It is located in NOHO (North of Houston), a neighborhood between the Central Village and East Village. Considered by many to be a real gem of a sandwich shop, bite claims the sandwich makers "work like monkeys on speed to bring you pleasure in bread." Bite goes the extra distance to use premium ingredients (organic greens, Holland tomatoes, extra-virgin olive oil, ciabatta, panini) with many from neighbors such as breads from Balthazar, mozzarella from Joe's Dairy. Most find the food excellent - click here for reviews and their menu. Some have found the lines to be long at times, but like many things New York, the extra good usually costs more in one way or another...

So thin, it's almost invisible, but still a dramatic photo...

Great photo. Thanks for the link to the other photos as I never would have believed there was a shop there.

You have so many interesting pictures!
I'm travelling to NY on february, so I'll be taking some notes about cool places to visit from your blog. It's good to have ideas of places to visit that don't appear in traditional travel guides!

Greetings from Chile!
