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.
The in-house eatery at the hip Mercer Hotel is run by fabled chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and showcases local ingredients in a Mediterranean fusion menu that changes with the seasons; sample dishes might include sashimi and horseradish pizza, butternut squash soup served in an individual kettle, and salmon glazed with kaffir and lime. The atmosphere is relaxed and lively—there’s a lovely brunch and a fun bar scene.
