Shopsin's question

Quick question regarding Shopsin's- I will be in Manhattan on Tuesday morning for business purposes and want to try Shopsin's (been wanting to for a long, long time but never got around to it). I will be wearing a suit- is this going to be a problem with them?

Obviously I have heard of them kicking people out for lots of random stuff and I wouldn't be surprised if they don't like people in suits so does anyone have an idea about what to expect in regards to this rather ridiculous question?

  1. Go in, sit down, order, and tell them to shove it if they give you trouble. Seriously, though, what's with this place and its attitude? No place that makes you wonder if you'll be treated rudely--on purpose--is worth the time or money.

      bob- although I generally would agree with you about places that treat customers like that, I still have to give this place one chance. I've heard way too many good things about the food so I have to try it; if I do get the attitude, then I won't be back.

        The food is glorified gimmicky diner food. Add that to the attitude and this is one to avoid.

          Correct. You need to hear some bad things about it. So much better things to do with your appetite.

            I have eaten there and thought it some of the most satisfying food I have had. Its' not fancy but it hits the spot. We had the sliders with grilled onions, very, very good. One of the best malted chocolate milkshakes I have ever had and the slutty cakes. I asked if I could have some Nutella with them and they obliged without insult and I even think they thought it seemed like a good combo. You could take your tie off, undo your top button and put your jacket in a bag, even a plastic one? Just think of it as the opposite of having to wear a jacket at Le Bernardin.
