from the Grand Central Oyster Bar
I swear that this will be the last “oyster” piece for at least a year…
Well maybe at Thanksgiving or Christmas… but yes, enough is enough.
And so, with more than a touch of self-indulgence and nostalgia, let’s make last stop the legendary Grand Central Oyster Bar.
(It was here, in 1994, that I made the contact that led to my first book contract.
That is my claim to have “history” here…)
Unless you know what you want before you sit down it is a good idea to talk to the staff and let them tell you what you want.
That said… The top center section of the menu is where it lists the Oysters the rest of the menu is worth looking at and ordering from.
The selection was a Six Point Sweet Action and:
3 each of the following:
(bottom left clockwise)
It was a dozen enjoyed with none other than a drop or two of lemon juice on each…
and the Six Point.
If I were a wealthy man I would have left three dozen more of the shells pictured below.
I am not a wealthy man so I will leave the oysters to multiply in peace
and your patience with my bivalve fixation no further tested.
