Something about the crowds and the massive urban space of Grand Central Market makes us think we shouldn’t eat raw seafood there. But The Oyster Gourmet proves us wrong every time. They’ve really only got three things on the menu (besides wine) - and the one worth your time is the plate of oysters. The selection constantly changes, and the shuckers are super knowledgeable - so even if you don't know the difference between a Blue Point and a Wellfleet, they’re always happy to help you figure out what you’ll like.
