You don’t need to be awaiting a train to enjoy the food at Grand Central Terminal.
Grand Central has become a dining destination in its own right — from old-school spots like the Grand Central Oyster Bar to newer creations like the Nordic-themed Great Northern Food Hall.
Now, the first annual “Taste of the Dining Concourse” will offer free bites of food from some of the other restaurants located in the historic train station, like La Chula, Zaro’s Family Bakery and Prova Pizzabar, from 11 a.m. to noon and 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., Feb. 27 through March 3.
Here’s a look at the foods travelers will be able to sample.
