The Grand Central Oyster Bar Brooklyn will present a décor that pays homage to the legendary original in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal while at the same time adding a new look in Park Slope.
The restaurant will have a trio of buildings within this while location, each characterized by its own distinct décor and functionality. The open kitchen and seafood market concept. The retail market area has counters and stools that replicate New York, as well as oyster and pan roast stations in front of the open kitchen.
· The middle area is the bar and lounge; its décor includes a marble top bar with Edison lighting and doorways opening to the sidewalk. The bar lounge includes saarinen furniture (tables, chairs and banquettes) that matches New York’s front lounge bar
· The third area is the 150-seat dining room with wood plank flooring, which includes an eight-foot chandelier original piece briefly used at GCOB, including a three-dimensional boat motif.
· The restaurant’s faux painted archways are not the vaulted ceiling, but do replicate the look of Guastavino tile-work in NYC
· Outside has exact Guastavino tiling on the façade in front of each building’s doorway atop of an arch, an exact replica of New York City.
· The restaurant’s lighting/chandeliers replicates New York
· A mural/photo print in dining room gives an in depth of New York’s Oyster Bar, as if the customer was sitting in the original
