Think of Grand Central like Panera Bread’s sophisticated older cousin who’s better than Panera in every way possible. Here you’ll find tasty sandwiches, like a turkey and havarti and a tuna melt with Beecher’s cheese on sourdough, along with salads, like a kale caesar with parmesan bread crumbs that are way more exciting than croutons. Don’t forget to add a shortbread cookie, too.
