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.
Set in Times Square—a neighborhood better known for trinkets and fast food chains—Blue Fin is an outlier and a standout. Located in the groundfloor of the W Times Square, it shares the same sleek, design aesthetic, with modish appointments and a glitzy glass staircase. Meanwhile, the food is ambitious, but not outlandish: Scottish salmon is dressed with morels, sweet garlic and verjus; the fried softshell crab has a rhubarb vinaigrette, and some extra crunch from toasted macadamia nuts. In addition, there’s a raw bar, serving east and west coast oysters, assorted clams and caviar, and sushi, to boot.
