Shorty’s.32, the new Soho spot named after chef-partner Josh “Shorty” Eden, who worked with Jean Georges for twelve years, may bill its cuisine as New American (word to the wise: They have an off-the-menu brunch sandwich called the McShorty, though it remains to be seen whether it will be available during lunch when that starts next week), but the small dining room’s playlist is classic American and Brit. In fact, one might even call it stoner music. Here are ten songs we heard during a recent visit.

That’s What Love Will Make You Do,” Jerry Garcia Band
Memphis,” Bob Marley & The Wailers
Sweetest Taboo,” Sade
She Belongs to Me,” Bob Dylan
Fool in the Rain,” Led Zeppelin
Ya Ya,” John Lennon
Little Wing,” Jimi Hendrix
Canary in a Coal Mine,” The Police
“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” The Beatles
It’s Only Rock ’N Roll,” Rolling Stones
