Tracks Raw Bar & Grill
Everyone knows there is a legendary raw bar in Grand Central, but
Penn Station can boast about housing one as well. Tracks Raw Bar
& Grill was named “The best new raw bar in the city” by the Daily
News, and Newsday stated, “The clam chowder is outstanding.”
Filled with railroad memorabilia, and staffed by the friendliest bartenders in the city, you’d never know you were in the middle of the
busiest train station in America. In addition to exceptional seafood,
they plate a terrific burger and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Proud recipients of the coveted Guinness Gold Standard Award.
