Just about anywhere else in town, this long-lived establishment (b 1968) would stand out plainly, with its three gilded dolphins gamboling over the elegant carved guilloche front door. But everything on this tiny street plays second fiddle to the A-House, 4-6 Masonic Place. At least the owner and manager of the Grand Central, April Cabral-Pitzner, can comfort herself in the fact that she also owns the A-House. In the mid-’70s, at the height of the Fern Bar era in America dining, the Grand Central’s décor was praised as “warm and romantic, featuring slate floor, hand-hewn beams and rough plaster, combined with local handicrafts.” • Historic District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-03-15
