Here's The Grand Central Oyster Bar and Restaurant Cookbook, by chef Sandy Ingber and cookbook author Roy Finamore. The book is as much about the history of 100-year-old New York City restaurant as it is the food — sections are dedicated to the famous counters, "champion shucker" Luis Iglesias, the portrait of ex-owner Jerome Brody that hangs in the restaurant's lounge, and much more. As for the recipes, they're pretty much straight forward East Coast seafood fare, with in-depth explanations of the differences between types of oysters, recipes for various oyster accompaniments, soups, sandwiches and more. The Grand Central Oyster Bar and Restaurant Cookbook comes out from Stewart, Tabori & Chang on October 15 (pre-order on Amazon); take a look inside.
