Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant
New York, NY 10017
Village Voice's Description
Let's turn our attention to oysters. And where else but the Oyster Bar, under the exhilarating vaulted ceiling in the bowels of Grand Central Terminal. There you can try 14 or 15 varieties at one time. Few culinary pleasures can match the chance to compare several from far-flung locales: Kumamotos from California; New Zealand Coromandels; Wellfleets of Massachusetts; and our own Blue Points. Or opt for a bowl of delicious Manhattan or New England clam chowder.
Tips from foursquare
Thirty-seven raw-oyster varieties, from Bluepoints to Beavertail, are the main attraction here, though the most popular dish is grilled swordfish over a frisse, mache and radicchio salad ($27.95).
This Grand Central favorite tops the Village Voice's Top 10 Oyster Bar list. The atmosphere alone is worth the price, with enormous arched ceilings spanning above the restaurant.
The perfect blend of old world dignity and New York kitsch. Sit at one of the communal U-shaped tables beneath the cavernous vaulted ceilings and enjoy the taste of Long Island Sound. - IFC Staff
