Entering Katz’s Delicatessen is akin to entering a living museum. The New York landmark, which opened in 1888 across the street and moved to its present location in the 1920s, is the purveyor of the definitive pastrami sandwich in the city, perhaps the best in the land.

Hudson Yards has dozens of dining establishments that include several from chefs with recognizable names including Thomas Keller and David Chang, as well as some from restaurant groups that aren’t quite as familiar. Not everything is oversized or formal. Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee, a New York-based coffeehouse, serves excellent coffees and teas as well as superb blackout chocolate doughnuts with sprinkles; Shake Shack, another New York-based favorite, has its classic burgers, fries, shakes, and frozen custards although the lines may be out the door.

Our restaurant critics’ recommend Intersect by Lexus, which introduces a new global chef-in-residence every four to six months. On the ground floor, diners first see a bar shaped like a wheel, a café, and a magnificent staircase (all temples to the automobile have one of these) that, in this case, leads to the dining room. The current chef, Tomás Kalika of Mishiguene in Buenos Aires, offers a menu that explores and reinterprets the cuisine of the Jewish diaspora.

Finally, Demarchelier is a remarkable gem of a French bistro is tucked away in on East 86tg Street in New York’s Upper East Side, with wonderfully authentic fare.
