Little Italy, nested in between several culturally-rich neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan, is known for its multitude of Italian restaurants. However, the authenticity is questionable.   In 2000 only 6% or 44 of the residents here were born in Italy, and in 2011 a census found that none of the residents in Little Italy were Italian-born. &nb...

It's 3 p.m. on Arthur Avenue in The Bronx, and Filomena Magavero settles in for a late lunch inside the venerable Mario's, a favorite Italian restaurant on this strip of Old World butcher shops, fish stores and bakeries. She sips a gin martini ("Is there any other kind?" Magavero gamely asks), and orders filet of flounder oreganata.   "Fish...
