Shopsin's has reopened in New York City! When the restaurant was mentioned in the penultimate episode of Heroes this spring, the West Village location had closed. Now, they've relocated to a nice corner of the Essex Street Market in the Lower East Side.
I stopped by there last week for breakfast and had the Diego - poutine topped with poached eggs. With it, a side of bacen. I'm glad they gave me a piece of cantaloupe and honeydew melon to make it healthy.
Their menu is now only 2 pages, but they still have about 30 kinds of pancakes and 50 kinds of soups. It's good to have them back.
