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. In Little Italy in the Bronx, on 187th Street near Arthur Avenue, is where you’ll find this retro retreat. Chef Laura Vecchio hits a high note with Italian and Italian-American dishes that have locals returning again and again. They come for antipasti like carpaccio di brasaola (air-cured beef) with baby greens and homey entrées like chicken scarpariello (roasted in lemon and wine). Reserve for Sunday evening, when opera singers perform to piano accompaniment.
