Due to some ongoing health issues, I have the occasion to take a trip into Manhattan a few times a year to see a specialist at NYU Medical. As much as we'd love to stay right in the city, it can be more than a bit cost prohibitive, especially when the doctor I'm seeing doesn't take ANY health insurance. Yep. None.
Anyway..... The point of my story is less about parking and more about the amazing Food Concourse at Grand Central Station. The building itself has been a Manhattan treasure and a stunning example of the Beaux-Arts style of architecture, since it's current structure first opened officially as Grand Central Terminal in 1913. It's gone through dozens of renovations, additions and restorations during the years since, but has remained the central hub of all train travel activity leading in and out of New York City.
One of the many levels and wings of Grand Central is the Food Concourse. Now, when one thinks of "travel food" or food you would most likely get while on the road, it generally isn't anything that could be considered fine dining. If anything, the words "fast food" usually come to mind. At Grand Central's Food Concourse this is definitely not the case. There are dozens of casual dining restaurants as well as some of the finest dining in Manhattan right there for you to enjoy. The world famous Oyster Bar Restaurant and Campbell Apartment Cocktail Lounge are prime dining and socializing destinations for both locals and tourists alike.
