Event Navigation

l-1-550x366

According to the organizers:

“All roads lead to New York City during the holiday season, from the tree lighting at Rockefeller Center to ringing in the New Year at Times Square, and everything in between! The epicurean destination for visitors and locals alike is the ‎historic Grand Central Oyster Bar (Lower Level, Grand Central Terminal), where executive chef Sandy Ingber will put forth both seafood bounty and culinary confections. On the Feast of the Seven Fishes for Christmas Eve (Thursday, December 24) and New Year’s Eve (Thursday, December 31), the “Bishop of Bivalves” will carefully prepare a la carte menus for each celebration with a flair. For those with a sweet tooth, Ingber teams with the Oyster Bar’s pastry chef Januz Nokafor dessert menus to die for on both holiday eves.

The four menus will be available for both lunch and dinner, beginning at 11:30 AM, with the final reservation for dinner at 10:00 PM. For reservations call 212-490-6650, and for more information visit www.oysterbarny.com.

Among the Feast of the Seven Fishes “frutte de mare” highlights are the Insalata di Natale Italian Seafood Salad and Grilled Jumbo Shrimp with Puttanesca Sauce over Spaghettini, two Italian-style menu fixtures, not to mention the exotic Sea Urchin Gelato, a rare but oft-asked-for dessert only available during the holiday season.

The New Year’s Eve entrees include sumptuous seafood specials such as Maine Lobster Newburg, Alaskan Red King Crabmeat over Spinach Salad, and Oyster Bar Surf & Turf featuring petite filet mignon and shrimp scampi.

The dancing sugarplums on the Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dessert menus include these culinary confections making the Oyster Bar a sugary stop: Espresso Sambuca Crème Brulee, Decadent White & Dark Chocolate Cake with Marinated Mixed Berries, and Jack Daniels Gelato with Spiced Nuts.”
