THE OYSTER BAR
Chaos has never been more fun than at the Oyster Bar. Packed to the gills at lunch and dinner daily, this Grand Central icon is one of the best places to gorge on all sorts of seafood. The room feels like you have gone back in time, with vaulted subway-tiled ceilings, and waiters that have been working here since Nixon was in the White House. As for the grub, there are over two-dozen varieties of oysters to choose from, as well as all sorts of chowders, fish sandwiches, fish entrees, and, well, you get the idea. If it swam or even sat in water, itís on the menu. If you are on the run, donít worry. Just grab a seat at the bar or one of the old-fashioned lunch counters for a quick lunch.
The Oyster Bar, Grand Central Station, lower level, 42nd Street, b/w Lexington and Vanderbilt Avenues, 212-490-6650.
