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.
Empellón Cocina is chef Alex Stupak's modern Mexican kitchen, a gem tucked in the East Village where a casual dining room is balanced with an innovative bar selection. At the eatery, chef Stupak, named one of Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs 2013, devotes his time to evolving the menu, working on new ways to embody Mexican flavors. The restaurant has received accolades for his efforts: in 2013, the James Beard Foundation nominated Empellón Cocina as a finalist for Best New Restaurant.
