Shopsin's - the last week (probably)

Akiko | Jun 17, 2002 03:45 PM

Eve told me that she didn't think that they'd be open this coming Sunday for brunch. They will be open for service, Monday through Friday... but that will be it for Shopsin's in their original location.

I took a peek into their new space... it is much larger than the old place and very white and clean with a closed off kitchen to the back.....

Shopsin's just wouldn't be the same if you couldn't see/hear Kenny at all times.... I wonder if he plans to "recreate" his kitchen in the front, so he can still interact with everyone while he's cooking.

For the last two weeks, there has been a videographer/producer guy named Matt, who has been videoing and "interviewing" Kenny while he cooks. He's also been interviewing the customers on their food. Matt's gotten some great material and Kenny was even in favor (actually asked Matt to do it) of the documentary. I heard that Matt has Kenny philosphising on life and the world as well as discussing the "chemistry" of food and cooking on tape. Who knows, if Kenny will actually let Matt "publicize" the material.
