Grand Central Oyster Bar

Grand Central Oyster Bar opened in 1913 on the lower level of Grand Central Terminal in a magnificent room visually dominated by vaulted and Gustavino-tiled ceilings. The array of possible dining experiences in this Beaux Arts beauty include a stool at the zagging 42-seat lunch counter, or at one of checker-clothed tables in the dining room, up several steps at an oyster bar, or into the back saloon to hang with the post-work crowd for happy hour. Wherever you choose to enjoy this iconic restaurant, begin your meal with a half (or full) dozen of oysters (there are at least two dozen on offer) before moving on to Manhattan (or New England) chowder and then the pièce de resistance, “Today’s Catch.” The fish—which can be arctic char, catfish, Dover sole, flounder, swordfish, or cod fillets—is prepared simply, either grilled or fried, and freshness is guaranteed. Bibs required.

Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant

Set beneath the main terminal of Grand Central Station in a cavernous space with arched and vaulted tiled ceilings, this oyster bar has the ambiance and décor of a 1960s throwback (Formica counters, modular stools). But its seafood is up-to-the-minute fresh: More than 25 oyster varieties are served daily, along with terrific pan roasts, stews and catches of the day.
