New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Though it features an attractive, all-white interior and a knowledgeable waitstaff, this sushi spot from co-chefs Kazuo Yoshida (Jewel Bako) and Atsushi Yokota is seriously flawed. Among the fusiony appetizers was a chalky chicken-liver mousse sealed with artificial-tasting clarified butter. A sashimi platter certainly looked pretty, with its ruby akami and coils of silver fluke. But the fish was dry and bland. The place does have one compelling draw--a collection of Japanese beers, including the rare Coedo Beniaka. Nutty and robust, it would pair beautifully with a hearty meal--if only we found something here worth eating.
