Asian Fusion + NYC’s Oldest Chocolates, All With a View of The Vessel
If you decide to spend your evening at Hudson Yards, Wild Ink is definitely a worthy dinner venue. The menu is Asian fusion, with all of the items inspired by the chef’s travels around the world. The decor is bright and modern—some of the window seats even have a great view of "The Vessel." Whatever you order—and nearly everything's a treat—be sure to get a side order of General Tso’s Sweetbreads, one of the tastiest things on the menu.
If you still have room for dessert, walk just a few paces to the Li-Lac Chocolates shop nearby. For all the chocoholics out there, the selection here won’t disappoint. Li-Lac is actually Manhattan’s oldest chocolate house—its Christopher Street location is the O.G. All of the chocolate is made in their factory in Industry City (field trip anyone?!), but only at the Hudson Yards location is a chocolate tempering wheel where staff can make select items using their 72% extra dark, dairy-free chocolate. And if you’re lucky, you’ll be there when chocolate tastings are going down. Because nothing beats free chocolate.
