“Extensive menu of unusual dishes”

Shopsins is known for both its extensive (900-item) menu of unusual dishes concocted by chef/owner Kenny Shopsin, including items such as "Slutty Cakes", pancakes with peanut butter in the middle, and "Blisters on My Sisters", similar to Huevos rancheros, and for Kenny Shopsin himself, described by Time Out New Yorkas "the foul-mouthed middle-aged chef and owner". Among Kenny Shopsin's quirks are his very specific rules, including a firm rule that the restaurant will not accept parties of more than four people. "Pretending to be a party of three that happened to have come in with a party of two is a very bad idea," wrote restaurant regular Calvin Trillin. The restaurant and Kenny Shopsin were the subject of articles by New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin and of the documentary film I Like Killing Flies, directed by Matt Mahurin. An effort to re-create Mr. Shopsin's "Slutty Cakes" was described in a January 2009 Slate article.
