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.
Taboon may be the first restaurant to coin the term "Middleterranean"—a marriage of kitchens from the Middle East and Mediterranean. The menu, conceived by famed Israeli consulting chef Haim Cohen, incorporates French technique and clean, articulated global ingredients in dishes like sautéed calamari with Greek yogurt and fennel, foie gras with green tomato marmalade and black tahini, and fresh halibut fillets in a tomato ragout with light Moroccan spices. And the name? It's the Arabic word for the domed oven built inside this Hell's Kitchen restaurant and the blazing source of the puffy house flatbread.
