New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Laurent Tourondel (BLT Fish, BLT Prime), has expanded his empire yet again: The artisanal, local foods at this Ritz-Carlton venture are served in pricey digs (see the leather and velvet banquettes) toned down by rural bric-a-brac. Basics--such as a gratis hot demibaguette with parsley-garlic butter, served in a paper bag--wowed us. Both Euro options (silky gnocchi in fennel cream sauce with fiery lamb sausage) and American ones (New York strip steak with a knockout pepper rub) prove the BLT reign is still going strong.
