In any discussion of New York City landmark restaurants, the Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant stands in a class by itself. From its unique position in the Terminal's lower level, with the famous "Whispering Gallery" at its entrance, waiters have been serving up platters of the freshest seafood for a century.
Here are more than 100 of the restaurant's classic recipes--some dating back to its opening in 1913--along with behind-the-scenes stories, historical anecdotes, and a wealth of expert information on buying, cooking, and serving fish. An ocean's worth of delicious eating is provided: from raw bar and seafood buffet favorites, to stews and chowders, to fish dishes fried, broiled, and grilled. Featured throughout are vintage images and ephemera, along with sumptuous food photography. Part history, part souvenir, The Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant Cookbook is a must-have for visitors and New Yorkers alike.
