Though the view is enough of a draw, menu highlights include Maine lobster, filet mignon, and lumaconi pasta with morels and camembert. To finish the meal with a chocolate mousse or pistachio gelato with cherry granita while looking out over a lit-up Manhattan is one of the most covetable experiences in New York.

As for Hudson Yards, in general, the development houses some other luxurious businesses like the Equinox Hotel, boasting an outdoor heated pool and sauna that you can access with a day pass.
