Oyster Bar at Grand Central Terminal

Another NYC landmark The Oyster Bar of Grand Central Terminal has been around since 1913.

They showcase over 15 varieties of fresh oysters on their raw bar and update the menu daily... it features soups, stews, shrimp, crabs, scallops, lobster, tuna, salmon, swordfish...the list goes on and on...the menu is HUGE and has only a handful of non-seafood items included!

My mom was in town (yay!) and we went here for lunch! We ordered the Pan Fried Maryland Softshell Crab, Malpeque Oysters (from P.E.I.) and the New England Clam Chowder


Everything was very very good!! A few years ago my Dad introduced me to the Malpeque oysters and they've been my favorite ever since!  I prefer east coast oysters over the west coast oysters because I like the saltier taste...I LOVE the sweet and saltiness of a Malpeque! Add some horseradish, hot sauce and lemon and I'm in heaven!! I always look for the Malpeques and love when I find them on a raw bar's menu!

My mom had the crab and loved it, I had a bite and agreed, it was yummy! Both the crab and the oysters tasted great and were very fresh! The New England Clam Chowder was fabulous too...very simple but it is definitely up there with some of the best I've ever had...(Legal Seafood's chowder still wins in my mind, and probably always will, because I'm in love with it!!!)

The architecture of Grand Central Terminal is stunning...check out these nice photos I took while there...
