The produce stands and meat vendors that have anchored Grand Central Market for 96 years now share the space with eateries
offering upscale lunch-counter fare, Thai street food, and pour-over coffee. The newcomers are part of a foodie facelift meant
to make sure the institution better represents the city’s varied culinary culture. Diners have crowded Sticky Rice for the
rotating menu of curries, Valerie for the Brown Derby Cobb Salad, and G&B Coffee for house-bottled cold-brewed joe—not to
mention the seafood bar at The Oyster Gourmet and the Texas-style barbecue pit at Horse Thief.
