Shapiro’s is like eating at my grandma’s…except for all the old Jewish people. Especially on a chilly Spring day that spits drizzle in your face, this old, cafeteria-style family business radiates warmth from the loaves of chewy rye bread, steaming trays of stuffed cabbage and mashed potatoes, and people hunched over plates of comfort.
Being in line can leave you a bit fertummelt. Here are some pointers…
- Pick up tray and silverware.
- Choose dessert—yea, you heard me! Don’t skip this step; the cakes are the 20-layer kind you dream up when you’re a kid and think, ‘When I’m big I’m going to eat cake before dinner, so there!’ Now is your chance.
- Decide on your choice of delicious—looking salads in little white bowls.
- What will it be? sandwich or hot entrée (comes with choice of two veggies)?
- Pay your gelt (money) to the unsmiling cashier (part of the charm).
- Choose a table next to the guy with the oxygen tank or the young couple with four kids who are all eating homemade mac and cheese.
- Fress (eat like an animal).
- Grepse (belch)
