    Starbucks Nixes Breakfast Sandwiches; Kenny Shopsin Ready for Mind-AlteringIn addition to slowing its expansion (finally), Starbucks will halt “sales of hot breakfast sandwiches because their smell interferes with the aroma of coffee.” [WSJ] If Padma Lakshmi could eat anywhere right now, she’d head to a little taco stand in Mexico for some fish tacos on the beach.

    Shopsin’s Opening Announced (Kind Of)Kenny Shopsin sent us one of his typically terse missives last night, consisting entirely of the email subject line: “2-3 weeks.” For those not following the endless Shopsin saga, the gray-locked, foul-mouthed grill man has been readying his stall in the Essex Street Market for months and teasing the media with visual messages. This is the best one yet.

    What Do Paradou Marché and Kenny Shopsin Have in Common? Paradou Marché, the Lower East Side spinoff of meatpacking standby Paradou, is up and running at the Essex Street Market, Rob and Robin report in this week’s Openings. Given how small a space they have to work with, it’s impressive that they are able to carry over not only the pressed sandwiches the original is so well known for, but also some heavy-duty French standards, like cassoulet and short ribs bourguignonne. Between these sandwiches and the ones that will be rolling out of Kenny Shopsin’s stall when it finally opens, the Essex Street Market is going to be one of our go-to destinations for fast food. Openings: FR.OG, Suba, Móle, and Paradou Marché. [NYM] Paradou Marché Menu

    A Taste of Kenny ShopsinKenny Shopsin, the profane prince of the New York short-order world, is back cooking again. As Eater reported yesterday, Anne Saxelby of Saxelby Cheesemonger is collaborating with the gray-maned curmudgeon on egg-and-cheese sandwiches at Essex Street Market, and we just had to try one. Kenny’s stand — which will, like his online novelty business, be called Shopsin’s General Store — isn’t open yet. You order the sandwich from Saxelby, and Anne disappears behind a red door, where Kenny is cooking away. We got a few mouthfuls of sandwich, and then earfuls of curses from the man himself.
