"Eat and grocery shop..." you can go home and eat some more. Seriously, if Chinatown had a "restaurant district," I would say Mott St. is it. Check out Harmony Palace (Mott and Canal) for a good place to bring out of town friends. Since its been renovated, it's seriously kind of swank/tacky. It'll impress people who are afraid of the grittiness (and Healthy Department doubts) of most Chinatown restaurants. Across the street, there's another place that's become more the local hangout since Harmony Palace upped their prices due to renovation. The restaurants down these two blocks are local favorites of mine.

"Nice but average"

When you come to this street you see that it is quaint and has some decent shops to look around in. The food is good too but nothing you can't get from any takeout place near your area. Also, when compared to other streets in NY this one pales in comparison. The place has friendly people and some shops but nothing that would warrant coming to NY just to see. I recommend coming here just so you can see you have been.

"Chinatown, My Chinatown"

One of the great streets in New York is Mott St from Worth to Canal. This is the life line of chinatown in ny. The street is vibrant with all types of restaurants and stores. My fav is Wo-Hop upstairs at 15 Mott St. The prices are reasonable and they are open late till about 3 am. Try the bakery up the block with the pink exterior.
