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.
Slowly revolving ceiling fans, blues music, butcher-block tables and luscious baked goods on the counter give off a decided Southern feel. But since this is Brooklyn, and the chefs are Ben Grossman and Craig Samuel (Peaches, The Smoke Joint), there's a modern touch to the shrimp and grits, black-eyed peas and fried green tomatoes. If you like your poultry spicy, try the juicy, peppery Nashville-style hot chicken. The crowd is a good mix of locals, cops and intrepid Manhattanites.
