Mark Peel Opening Oyster Bar-Style Stand Inside Grand Central Market

New, 4 comments

The former Campanile chef returns in casual form to Grand Central Market by way of a simple seafood shack. It's taking over the old Lupita's Seafood.

Mark Peel, who last closed down Campanile (which made way for Republique), is now back in the restaurant game after a few years off. Daily Dish reports that the Top Chef Masters contestant is opening a seafood stand inside Grand Central Market at the former Lupita's Seafood. It's the first major opening announced at Grand Central Market since McConnell's Ice Cream hit the crowded emporium a few months ago.

According to the LA Times, Peel will prepare fish in a variety of ways: poached, steamed, or cooked into soups on steam oyster cookers. It'll all feel a bit like Grand Central Oyster Bar in Manhattan (though perhaps not exactly like the insanely popular Oyster Bar at Las Vegas' Palace Station). He'll also offer a seafood market selection for items to 'cook yourself.' There's no name yet, but everything should land at less than $15 to around $9-13.
