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.
Racines means "roots" in French, so don't make the mistake that it has something to do with Racine, Wisconsin. Michelin-starred executive chef Frédéric Duca was recruited to recreate his Parisian wine bar in TriBeCa with partners David Lanher, Arnaud Tronche and David Lillie, an owner of natural-wine specialist Chambers Street Wines. Racines NY is far more than a wine bar, however, the seasonal, labor-intensive food revelatory and worth the expense. There will always be vegetable variations with seafood, poultry and lamb dishes, but there's one aspect that is truly French: sauces so intensely delicious you might yell if anyone tries to remove your plate before your bread has sopped up the last bit.
