Grand Central Oyster Bar's Master Shucker Luis Iglesius

Welcome back to the Eater's Moving Pictures feature A Shift With. Here we will bypass the famous chefs, the oft-interviewed restaurateurs and GMs and try to shine a light on the individuals in the restaurant industry who perform their duties outside of the public eye. Meaning the meat smokers, the in-house butchers, the bread bakers, the dim sum chefs, and the florists.

The series continues at Grand Central Oyster Bar, where master shucker Luis Iglesius opens hundreds of oysters every day. Hit play on the video above to hear about how he became an oyster shucker at the famed restaurant, and see what an average shift is like for him at the Oyster Bar.
