100 Million Oysters — and Bronxville’s Noel Mangan Slurped the Last One


OK, so Noel Mangan of Bronxville didn’t slurp the very last oyster at Grand Central Oyster Bar on Friday night. But, at the “Grand Centennial Celebration” of the Oyster Bar’s 100th birthday, he did slurp what the restaurant claims was the 100-millionth oyster served in its 100 year history. Mangan, shown here with chef Sandy Ingber, took home a pearl necklace and earrings from Casale Jewelers of Staten Island. Nice prize!
