New York: Grand Central Oyster Bar
>New York City

The Grand Central Oyster Bar is baked into New York City’s history. Nestled in the city’s Grand Central Terminal, the site was said to have been selected by railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt. Opened in 1913, the restaurant has weathered some downturns, including a fire in 1997. Whether for fine dining or a bite before hopping on train, however, it remains a go-to place for enjoying clams and oysters on the half shell, along with a large choice of other seafood.
