Grand Central Market had another banner year, with openings happening almost every month. The latest to the fold is the shell-like Oyster Gourmet, which sits in a kiosk next to G&B on the Hill Street Side. Meanwhile, Sticky Rice, which was one of the first new school vendors to open in the market a few years ago, is undergoing a facelift. Don't worry, fans can still check out Sticky Rice #2, which opened just behind the original kiosk, for things like pad thai and pad see ew.

Also, Mark Peel's upcoming seafood stand (unrelated to the Oyster Gourmet), will tout dishes similar to those of Pearl Oyster Bar in Grand Central Terminal, is taking over a large stall near the Broadway side, a few paces behind the ever-popular Eggslut (which is close to opening a Ramen Champ in Chinatown's Far East Plaza).

Finally, there's a new ceviche-focused restaurant going into the stall across from Belcampo. Is there were Lupita's Seafood will relocate? Or will another new school vendor hit Grand Central Market?
