Neighborhood Guide: SoHo

With the opening of our first Nautica Global Flagship Store at 101 Prince Street in the SoHo district of New York City, we did a little friendly neighborhood snooping to find the best of the best SoHo jaunts. What did we find? Well, feast your eyes on the coolest stuff we discovered South of Houston!

 

 

Fanelli Cafe

Fanelli’s Café
94 Prince Street

Just steps away from the Nautica flagship lies the historic Prince Street Staple, Fanelli Café. Its iconic neon sign and delicious American food (see: cheeseburger) will leaving you coming back for more. Known as the second oldest food-and-drink location in SoHo, Fanelli’s was one of the hippest locations for artists to hang out. Bob Dylan was even noted to be a regular!

We compiled a list of a few of our favorite NYC waterside restaurants that we think maybe you will like too-
