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.
After throwing back a mojito in the dimly lit bar—where rows of liquor bottles are sleekly backlit in blue—and savoring authentic and affordable Puerto Rican cuisine, you’ll quickly get the feeling that you’re not on Sutton Place anymore. Start your meal at Sofrito with an assortment of empanadas or a Puerto Rican-style gumbo, followed by a plate of arroz con pollo (chicken and rice), ropa vieja (shredded beef) or a heaping paella. Sofrito features live Latin music six days a week, with DJs spinning on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
