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.
ChipShop is a cheeky joint extolling adages like "In Cod We Trust" and "Fry the Bugger!" On the buttery yellow walls are Beatles, The Who and Benny Hill posters and shelves filled with British tchotchkes and Blue Peter books. Seating is at church pews alongside small tables decorated with twopence and images of the royal family. Fish-and-chips fans will be chuffed to find they taste exactly as they would from a chippie stall in London. Indeed, all the staples are here for the homesick: steak-and-kidney pie, mushy peas, chip butty, baked beans on toast, Scotch eggs, bangers and mash, spotted dick. Deep-frying is a specialty—everything from macaroni and pizza to Twix and Mars bars gets battered and dunked in oil. This Park Slope location is the original, with a sister restaurant on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill.
