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.
Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. More famous for its murals than for its straightforward bistro fare, Café des Artistes is appropriate for a night at the opera or even an elaborate proposal. The natural charm of the space is enhanced by the vivacious paintings of half-naked nymphs, intact since the 1930s. A long wooden bar and extravagant flower arrangements add to the romantic feel, even if you have to rush out to make that 8pm curtain at Lincoln Center.
