Kenny Shopsin first set up shop in the Village, operating an eclectic neighborhood deli and grocery on Bedford & Morton Streets. Nowadays, Shopsin’s is a tiny diner counter / restaurant in the corner of the Essex Street Market. His family helps run it and everyone in the place swears like a sailor. And they have some firm rules. No parties larger than four. No additions, no substitutions, and no special requests. But you shouldn’t need any, since the menu is over 900 items long.
