Following an almost three month renovation, iconic restaurant Grand Central Oyster Bar reopens to the public today. The old gal, who turned 100 last year, was in need of a little nip-and-tuck, so to speak, and temporarily shut her doors at the beginning of the year.

As part of the facelift, the restaurant's gorgeous landmarked arch-tile ceilings by Valencian architect Rafael Guastavino were restored and the white lounge area chairs and counters were given a sprucing up. Behind the scenes, the large kitchen area was also renovated.

“After 100 years, the Oyster Bar’s restoration is well-deserved and much needed,” said President Janet Poccia and Vice President Mohammed Lawal in a joint statement. “After all, such masterpieces as Michaelangelo’s Pieta and Sistine Chapel were restored; the Oyster Bar is part of New York City’s fabric and culture, and is worthy of the same." The team also opened a Park Slope outpost last December that sought to mimic the original's delightful decor.

“The seemingly ageless queen of New York dining will still serve its 5 million plus oysters this year, just after a two-month hiatus,” assured the owners. Bring it on.
