Lunch options by Grand Central

We're trying to find a nice place for lunch by Grand Central. We'll be walking down from Central Park on 5th Ave. Something nice, relatively quick, not too pricey. Having a little trouble finding a quality place that's not too far out of the way.

We enjoyed our lunch IN Grand Central because of the variety of shops in the terminal..... it is below the main concourse...

The Oyster Bar inside the Grand Central. You can't beat that for good seafood, your location and well priced.

Yeah i agree. No need to find elsewhere when you can pop downstairs in GCT itself.

We loved the Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station (they have lots of things besides oysters too if you're not a fan). I was pleased to see it included in the article '12 Tourist Spots in New York That Are Actually Good' that I found on this Forum.

i'd have to disagree and say the oyster bar in GC was possibly one of the worst places i have ever eaten in NYC. We read so much about it, heard it was great so went for a special occassion, the oysters were severely over cooked, I ordered mussles in white wine sauce for main, they were embarrassingly over done, the sauce was awful and bland. I never complain in restaurants but there was just no way i could justify paying for the food we had and in fairness to them they didnt charge us, we paid for my husbands starter and our wine and drinks. So do not go there if you like good seafood!
