The Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant

89 E 42nd St
Grand Central Terminal, Lower Concourse
New York, NY 10017
Midtown East


One of the grandest restaurants in Manhattan, this breathtakingly massive spot in the lower concourse of Grand Central Terminal packs them in at large booths and plenty of counter space, which snakes through the joint like a reptile. Marvel at the tile ceilings (or in the Oyster Bar's adjacent, wood-happy, old-school saloon—if only the walls could talk!) while noshing on fried oysters, clams casino and an expensive (nearly $30) but satisfying lobster roll.
