A Ray of Breakfast Sunshine

Filed under: food, frivolity

This blog is supposed to be both feminist & foodie, but for the last while it’s been long on feminism and short on food. That, my friends, changes now.

When Shopsin‘s, my favorite quirky brunch spot with over 1,000 delicious choices on the menu, closed a couple of months ago, I was crushed.

But Kenny Shopsin, the foul-mouthed savior of breakfast, has resurrected himself in the form of a stand at the Essex St. Market, which was created by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia to get the street vendors, seen as a nuisance, centralized and indoors.

Shopsin’s stall (No. 16) isn’t officially open yet. But he is already collaborating with Anne Saxelby of Saxelby Cheese Mongers (his new Essex St. Market Neighbor) to cook up one of the most delicious-looking breakfast sandwiches I have ever seen. Behold:

Free range eggs, aged Grafton Cheddar, clarified butter, and a fresh Portugese Roll.

And Shopsin created breakfast. And it was good.

Watch that cholesterol. Any designer oatmeal out there?

As a breakfast sandwich devotee – DAMN, does that look and sound wonderful. I’ll have to remember it next time I’m in that area around brekky-time… which is an extremely rare occurrence, alas.

looks like a disgusting soggy grease sponge to me.

Julian, my friend, the grease is exactly the point.

Bean, don’t you want to live to be 100? Remember that enzyme Q10 … available no doubt from Zabars?
