I have always wanted to try this gem but never had the opportunity due to his weird hours. Tuesday-Friday 9-3 and Saturday 9-2. Obviously, since I work I can't make it there during the week and I like to sleep in on Saturdays since I am usually dead from waking up early every other day. However, next week I have some vacation time and was planning to hit up Shopsins joint on a Tues or Wed afternoon.
Is this place still great? I love the fact that it is a hidden, hole in the wall, adventurousand eclectic menu type of place. Many have considered it an NY classic since it is tough to find places like this anymore.
Obviously I am not expecting a 5 star dining experience you would expect from a $180. I am just looking forward to some great down some comfort food cookin from Kenny. I admit the HUGE menu is definitely going to cause problems for me since I will want to try everything and most likely over order. Does Kenny cap the amount of food that a solo diner can order if he deems it too much? I have heard some people mention that in the past of him doing this.
Alas what are the best hings to order? I obviously have heard about the famous slutty cakes, mac n cheese pancakes, ebelskivers, his awesome and crazy lunch plate pairings and combinations, etc. One great thing I noticed is you can order half orders of pancakes, which would allow me to sample a few different kinds. I was thinking half slutty, half mac n cheese, and maybe something else.
So is Shopsins still great or whats the updated word on Mr. Kenny's classic NY experience?
