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.
The Meatpacking District may have lost some of its juice, but Jean-George Vongerichten’s sprawling, exotic, wood-happy Asian space, which first opened its doors in 2004, still draws in a steady crowd. Focusing on the Asian street food Vongerichten has enjoyed in his travels east, the menu offers everything from charred chili-rubbed beef skewers with Thai basil dipping sauce to pineapple and cinnamon sticky buns with rose petal ice cream. All of the dishes are brought to you by orange-clad servers who race out the dishes as fast as the kitchen can whip them up.
