5. Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant (est. 1913)

Oyster Bar in Grand Central

When Grand Central Terminal‘s anchor restaurant was first established, it was a little behind on New York’s oyster craze. It caught up. It’s perfected the oyster, and now serves up to 30 different varieties of oysters and 25 types of fish. If you don’t like fish (you’re down to a selection of 5 dishes), come for the Martinis and the magnificent Guastavino tiled ceiling.
