New York City's Grand Central Terminal celebrates 100 years this month, and the station is hosting a number of festivities in celebration of the centennial. One big plan has piqued the interest of bargain hunters and historians alike -- Grand Central shops and restaurants will roll back the clock and feature prices from 1913.

The Gothamist reports that on February 1, Grand Central will offer "clams for pennies, pounds of pasta for a nickel, gelato for a dime [and] pieces of fudge for a quarter."

While not all of the station's restaurants and shops (sorry, no deals from the Apple store) are offering 1913 prices, here are some of the foods you can expect to find in the Terminal:

Pescatore

Tri Tip Grill
