This Asian-inspired spot in Hudson Yards has a big marble bar, leather booths, and floor-to-ceiling windows, and generally feels like it should be in Meatpacking. Instead, it overlooks The Vessel and the Hudson River. You wouldn’t feel out of place wearing something cooler than what you wore to work (and you’ll be showing that outfit off to the hundreds of people you pass as you ride multiple escalators up to the fifth floor to get here). The food, which ranges from crab croquettes to mapo tofu dumplings to Japanese risotto, sounds more interesting than it tastes, and is generally just fine. The bulgogi beef puffs with Welsh rarebit are the best thing we’ve eaten here, but we wouldn’t pay $15 for three beef puffs again. If you want a Meatpacking vibe, just head 20 blocks south.
