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.
Noodle masters trained in Chinatown pull, twist and thwack organic dough into shapes at this fashionable NoHo venue. Steaming soups are topped with ingredients like black-feathered chicken breast, quince and chanterelles or duck breast and leg with Szechuan roasted peppers. It's entertaining to sit at the bar and watch these masters in action. The industrial-chic dining room is dark and inviting, catering to an artsy crowd. It's not as cheap as Chinatown, but it's not expensive either, with everything under $20. In addition to a smart selection of sake is a European-focused beer and wine list. Service is fast and friendly.
