Opened in 1913, tucked in the vaulted subterranean chambers of Grand Central Station, the Oyster Bar serves two million bivalves a year. On a good night it'll list 30 on the chalkboard: Moonstones from Rhode Island, Phantom Creeks from British Columbia, Meximotos from Baja, perhaps savory Conway Cups from Prince Edward Island (which taste, no joke, like chicken). This is a great option for solo dining, as Grand Central has no shortage of interesting distractions and people to watch. Ask the shucker behind the bar about his picks for the day.
