Best Choice Chowder (2008)

OYSTER BAR

Nothing beats the creamy New England clam chowder at the OYSTER BAR, under the exhilarating vaulted ceiling in the bowels of Grand Central Terminal (skip the nearby food court—it's a wasteland). Sit at the bar and watch the shuckers shuck and the chowder cooks wield that weird, counter-mounted metal contraption. Amazingly, a big bowl served with oyster crackers is still only $4.75! If you're feeling flush, eat a few raw oysters beforehand.
