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.
Don’t judge this place by its strip mall-esque exterior—this Peruvian restaurant and steakhouse, right under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Williamsburg, is one of the best spots in the trendy ’hood. Owned by Peruvians, it is dimly lit (with a garden out back) and usually packed with longtime locals. Try the shell steak, the fried rice with strips of chicken or beef and a side of yucca. And don’t forget to order extra green sauce—guaranteed you’ll be craving it in the middle of the night.
