The Oyster Bar at Grand Central
I have talked before about visiting the Grand Central Oyster Bar. Although somewhat of a touristy destination for some, there are still many who don't know this place exists! The restaurant has been there since 1913 and boasts a list of both West Coast, East Coast, and Canadian oysters. Definitely worth a visit in my opinion just to see the history; it's always a favorite stop of mine when in the city.
Find the oyster varieties I tried this time around below:
(4) French Kiss - Prince Edward Island
(2) Barron Point - Vancouver British Columbia
(2) Belon Wild - Maine and as a side note one of the rarest oysters in the world. I was actually pretty lucky to find these in town.
As I sit in Chelsea market editing this post I am planning my next oyster bar visit at lunch today. If you are in NYC a visit to this market is a must housing both the Food Network and Major League Baseball corporate offices. Those businesses are nestled among many wonderful little shops and restaurants.
What are your favorite destinations in NYC?
