Maybe you haven’t gone down this stretch of Broome Street since dancing in showers was cool at Happy Endings.

With new chef Kevin Chun (Yunnan Kitchen, Macao Trading Co.) in the kitchen at Louie and Chan, and the not-so-secret downstairs lounge the303, this Italian-Chinese immigrant-inspired neighborhood spot has definitely become a destination.

For me, I have no problem eating those foie gras stuffed truffled arancini with fig and brown butter vinaigrette ($12) even in the summer’s heat. Most of the pastas are freshly made, though a bit over-salted, and beautiful blistered pizzas come straight from the wood-fired oven.

DJs spin downstairs in the evenings and on weekends the upstairs is open for brunch.
