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.
For an establishment with an unassuming entrance and no signage to speak of, the so-called No Name Bar is many things at once: it’s a cozy local watering hole, a ramen restaurant serving authentic Japanese soups and an outdoor hangout in what is likely the neighborhood’s most spacious back garden. Booths line the main-floor bar, leading out to the gigantic, tree-filled yard that’s often crowded with a fashionable, raucous crowd—just don’t get caught up in the party and miss the tiny basement kitchen, where a tiny kitchen offers up Thai delicacies like beef stew noodle soup, lemongrass seafood noodle soup, and pork with basil and sunny-side egg on rice.
