Grand Central Oyster Bar opened a few months ago in the massive space that was last occupied by Fornino, and while the news that it was coming was certainly huge, there was very little fanfare around its grand opening and not much word about it since.
If you've walked past the restaurant since it opened, you most likely saw that there weren't many people inside most of the time: not browsing the fish market or sitting at the oyster bar in the first storefront, not drinking cocktails at the marble-topped bar or eating light bites at the mod tables behind it in the second, and not filling up the sparse and spacious dining room in the third. And Yelp reviews have been less than stellar.
So if you haven't dropped by yet to check it out, why not? And if you have, how was your experience?
