Let's face it: Sometimes, you just want something a little less exotic. Here are some favorite local restaurants, both new and old: Blue Water Café: Busy even when other spots are empty, this Yaletown hot spot serves local seasonal catches at different stations: sushi counter, raw bar and bustling open kitchen; Blue Water Café, 1095 Hamilton St., Yaletown; (604) 688-8078, www.bluewatercafe.net. Cibo Trattoria : Named Canada's best new restaurant in 2008 by Air Canada's in-flight magazine, this square box of a room seats perhaps 50. Service is professional and friendly, and the market-based Italian menu changes daily.

A family from the Midwest formed a crescent around the posted menu outside an Italian restaurant on Mulberry Street, the main (and only) drag of Manhattan's shrinking Little Italy. It didn't take long for the Latino restaurant barker - the guys who stand on the sidewalk trying to lure in the indecisive and hungry - to pounce: " Ciao, bellas ," he said, using the Spanish plural of the Italian noun. "Come in and eat," he added, motioning with a sweep of his arm toward the open door.
