Shopsin's at Essex Street is open now
I'd always been reluctant to go to their former locations because I thought the food wouldn't be that good unless you ordered just the right thing out of hundreds of items. But I had a very pleasant lunch there today, and found their shorter menu to be kind of delightful. Only a couple of things made me feel a bit uneasy... (although I probably would end up liking the macaroni and cheese pancakes. )
The aebleskivers were very good, and that was the first time I'd had them. --I'm so glad I don't have to go to Solveng now. Also, everyone was really nice and not scary at all.
