Flinders Lane has long been a culinary destination. Ronnie di Stasio (Cafe di Stasio) got his start here in 1985, with the fabled Rosati. Restaurants have come and gone in the interim, but the eight-block stretch remains a dining powerhouse; the Spring Street end in particular. Here are our picks on Flinders Lane itself, and very close by.
