Grand Central Oyster Bar and Restaurant, New York

Extract from How to Find Old New York.

While some claim there are better oysters to be had around town, there can be no more beautiful place in which to eat them than beneath the vaulted ceiling of this magnificent terminal. There are three dining areas but, to fully savour the experience, take a seat at the counter and enjoy the spectacle around you.
