What's their deal? An Essex St diner which boasts a 900-item menu of dishes like Slutty Cakes and Blisters on My Sisters, Shopsin's operates on an unwritten set of rules, including no parties larger than four, to the dismay of Neve Campbell and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
How exactly they're mean: Even if you're deemed worthy of service, expect a high level of belligerence. But heaven help you if you take too long to order (you're out!), if they don't like the look of you (you're out!), or if you order something from the vegan portion of the menu (they'll label the order with an offensive note questioning your sexual orientation).
Redeeming factor: Mac and cheese pancakes
