Ethnic areas include Little Italy, Asiatown, Slavic Village, Ukrainian Village, and the near westside Puerto Rican, far eastside heavily Jewish.
YUMMMM...Sokolowski's ...

I also love Cleveland's Little Italy. I agree with Mario Batali: Corbo's Bakery has the BEST cassata cake I've ever had in America: 10 great places to discover Italy in America - USATODAY.com

I did notice that when living in NYC, a good selection of Cuban-Chinese cuisine. You can find them pretty easily in South Florida and Tampa as well though. My personal favorite being Arco-Iris in Tampa.

In Boston if you name a type of Ethnic food, we should probably have at least 1 or 2 good places to fill your need. I'm finding that in most major US cities now you can find that is the case. With that being said though, the areas were Boston excels are (and a link to my personal favorite places):

Brazilian (Muqueca Restaurant)
Cambodian (Floating Rock | Cambodian Restaurant | Cambodian Food | Cambridge, MA)
Nepali (Kathmandu Spice)
Haitian (Highland Creole Cuisine - Somerville, MA)
Taiwanese (http://www.yelp.com/biz/taiwan-cafe-boston)
Cantonese (Peach Farm - Chinatown - Boston, MA)
Azorean (The Snack Bar and O Senhor Ramos - On The Cheap)
Portuguese (Restaurant Casa Portugal)
Vietnamese (http://www.yelp.com/biz/xinh-xinh-boston)
Italian (Prezza - Fine Dining)
Armenian (Home | Sevan Bakery)
Turkish (Istanbul'lu Delicious Food, Great Sevice & Atmosphere)
Jamaican (Flames Caribbean Food)
Cape Verdean (Restaurante Cesaria - Dorchester - Dorchester, MA)
Israeli/Jewish (Rami's-kosher corporate catering in boston)
Dominican (La Fe Restaurant | Lynn Happens)
Salvadoran (Montecristo Restaurant - Somerville, MA)

Of course you can cover basically every other type of food, but the above are what I consider very strong foods in the Boston area and that means having more than just a few options around town. I can personally attest to the strength of the Jamaican food being Jamaican myself and Turkish because of living in Istanbul last year (Boston area has the best Turkish I have tasted outside of Istanbul)
