Grand Central Indoor Food Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Make your way to Pershing Square, a landmark café that’s just across from Grand Central Station. This tour begins with a bit of history, as you explore the elegant exterior of the station building, and hear the story of Grand Central Station’s construction and refurbishment.

    Inside the building, visit a series of gourmet stops, where you’ll taste local foods that are hand-picked for you. This is a lunchtime tour, so bring an appetite along: you’ll be able to make a meal of all the snacks along the way. Trace a route to the ‘must-see’ spots inside Grand Central, like the Kissing Room, the Whispering Gallery, and the Station Master’s Office. Learn some of the station’s many secrets, including one that’s hidden in the Zodiac ceiling that arcs over the Main Concourse.

    This tour concludes at Grand Central Station, and take home a parting gift of a coupon book that’s good for post-tour shopping at one of the station’s 68 vendors.

    Annabel was a wonderful tour guide. Though we signed up for this tour because of the food-tasting appeal, it was the information and unique stories regarding the history of Grand Central that was the highlight of the tour. Our food stops during the tour were great, but

    We really enjoyed our day with our guide, Annabel. She was gracious, funny, intelligent, and provided the right amount of balance of historical facts along with current data. We’ll never pass through Grand Central without looking for the ‘acorns’ again 🙂
