      New restaurants open regularly in NYC, often sending classic eateries to the back burner. This is unwarranted, however, as oldies can still be goodies too. Even if they don't quite have all the bells and whistles of the modern, trendy cuisines, many of NYC's old-timers remain worthwhile. Courtesy of Eater, here's A Guide to NYC's 15 Most Beloved Old-Timer Restaurants. A couple of them can be found in the East Village. Forlini's Restaurant This red sauce joint has been satisfying customers for 70 years. Located in the heart of Chinatown, Forlini's is best known for their stuffed shrimp, veal parm and tortellini in Alfredo sauce. Katz's Delicatessen This deli's photogenic food tastes as good as it looks. Now in its 124th year, Katz's longevity speaks to its quality. Their carved-to-order pastrami and corned beef sandwiches rank with the best of them and their matzo ball soup and frankfurters won't leave you disappointed either. Forlini's Restaurant: 93 Baxter St. btwn. Leonard & Canal Sts. Katz's Delicatessen: 205 E. Houston St. at Ludlow St.
