Cover Story

Cheap Eats

In the culinary landscape of the city, new restaurants pop up overnight. We present our favorites of the latest crop—from perfect panini on Wall Street to $2 tamales on the Slope to über-fresh seviche in Queens.


Look Again

Losing Her Religion

Chayie Sieger was a dutiful Hasidic wife and mother in Borough Park until she left her husband of 24 years, accusing him of adultery and battery. But when a rabbinical court issued a harsh ruling in his favor, she fought back, accusing the rabbis of taking bribes and her community of abandoning her.
