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.
This big, family-friendly Italian restaurant specializes in thin, grilled pizza, a wide array of antipasti and pasta dishes. Chef/owner Michael Ayoub's original Fornino in Williamsburg was such a hit that this second, larger branch hit the ground running. The space is meant to evoke 1930s Brooklyn, detailed in dark mahogany wood, distressed wooden floors and tabletops designed with a decoupage of vintage newspapers. Ayoub's glassblowing talents are also on display with sculptures and lighting fixtures. An adjoining shop sells his house-made sauces and fresh pasta.
