Say goodbye to coffee-on-the-go

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is looking for new tenants to move into Grand Central Terminal.

Say goodbye to grabbing a terrible yet necessary coffee-on-the-go, or picking up that bottle of wine you meant to buy days ago for your in-laws as you board the train. Tenants like Brooklyn-based Junior’s, Two Boots Pizza and Grand Harvest Wines are not part of the MTA’s Grand Central makeover, according to the New York Post.

Instead, you can expect to be perusing the fine wares of Oprah Winfrey’s former personal chef in the store Art Bird & Whiskey Bar.

The MTA’s search for new tenants is imminent: five request for proposals for retail space are supposed to be released by the end of 2017 with 12 more to go out in 2018.

“Heading into the next two years, we expect a hastening pace of RFPs for retail spaces at Grand Central,” said an MTA spokesman to the Post.
