A sushi place. I think.

The heart of a Little Italy, still (somewhat)

At the turn of the 20th century and beyond, there were at least three "Little Italy" neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan: one down near Chinatown along Mulberry and Mott streets, another just west of Fourth Avenue near Cornelia Street, and a third, immediately south of Washington Square along Sullivan, MacDougal and Thompson streets. 100 years later, it is perhaps along Thompson Street that the old neighborhood show the smallest change in its character.
