There won't be any tennis at the first-ever US Open pop-up restaurant in Grand Central, but there will be free food.
From noon to 2pm on August 12, head to the terminal's Vanderbilt Hall for a sneak peak of the select offerings that will be available at the world's highest-attended annual event. The gratis goodies come courtesy of the tournament's celebutoques Tony Mantuano (Spiaggia in Chicago) and Richard Sandoval (Pampano), who will be providing bites like tomato-rubbed bread with Serrano ham and a Latin-inspired salad with chicken tinga, jicama and chayote with a zesty piloncillo dressing. Rounding out the offerings will be chopped brisket sliders from Hill Country Barbecue and of course, the US Open's own signature lobster roll.

To sweeten this no-brainer, you'll receive iced coffees from Lavazza and have a chance to snap a selfie with the US Open men's trophy replica by Tiffany & Co. Get there early though—doors open right at 12:30 and food will be served until supplies run out.
