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.
Tucked away from the bustle of Bedford Avenue, this neighborhood gem offers delicious Brazilian food in an intimate candlelit setting. Dinner highlights include a traditional feijoada--smoky and thick stew with ham hock and black beans --and a shrimp stew that gets its bright flavor from coconut milk and cilantro. Brazilian churrasco--grilled meat--is also available, in the form of a simple filet mignon, nicely charred and served with garlicky collard greens. Though the food is the main draw, Beco is also a great place to sip potent caipirinhas and catch a soccer game.
