I love the Grand Central Terminal Oyster Bar, for their oysters obviously, also the smoked trout with whipped horseradish cream and the pan roasts are rich and hearty and satisfying. I also just love being there, the restaurant itself is just awesome. However I've always been underwhelmed by the main courses from the kitchen. I haven't been in a while, and was wondering if, hoping really, that the kitchen was putting out better food nowadays.
Has anyone been going recently? Has it improved? Are there any dishes in particular that are notably good? I'm thinking of going next week, but want to eat more than just oysters and smoked trout if I do.
Last time I was there, I had a couple dozen oysters, payed my bill and went upstairs to Michael Jordan's and had a steak. A little drastic, I know, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.
