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.
Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. Just north of Union Square on Park Avenue South, Wildwood Barbeque joins a number of other restaurants opened in the last few years to cater to New York’s renewed desire for all-American barbecue. A former motorcycle cop, pit master “Big Lou” Elrose presides over the sauces and spices that give the ribs, brisket, pulled pork and lamb ribs their flavor. The restaurant prides itself on its long list of bourbons and whiskeys.
