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.

We’re certainly not experts on Pan-Asian cuisine, but our ultimate assessment of Khe-Yo is that they should have gone all the way. While the small plates blew us away, the mediocre entree dishes left us unsatisfied.
Glaze Teriyaki Grill
Glaze Teriyaki is a reliable and seemingly somewhat healthy option for cheap Midtown lunch. Midtown could use more of those.

Is complaining about Fashion Week your favorite activity during Fashion Week? Are you a young, vaguely employed man with long hair? Could you identify Marc Jacobs by his tattoos, should the opportunity present itself? If so, then you’ve probably been to Indochine.
