Review: Century Grand - the Highest-Velocity Bar Eats in Town
A heady mix of food, wine, whiskey, cocktails, and theater


Century Grand might be one of the most exceptional food and drink experiences in town. In the long space with a 1920s railway theme, more than 500 whiskey bottles await in The Grey Hen, or restaurant shop. You can sip bubbles, throw back cocktails with kefir and lacto-fermented blueberries, or spoon into boozy desserts on the simulated Prohibition-era train ride, Platform 18. But more tellingly, in the dining room — walls concrete, lights yellow, quick jazz making your heart race and cocktail vanish — your bartender might give you a steak knife for your salad.
