What to Order if You Find Yourself at a Shitshow

View as Map

2008_10_hasmaps.jpgFor the most part, it's fairly easy to avoid New York's most glaring shitshows and otherwise unappealing restaurants. But every once in awhile, due to some uncontrollable circumstance, even the most careful of New York diners will find themselves smack dab in the middle of one. Maybe a friend is staying at The Thompson LES and they want to try Shang, maybe a client scheduled dinner at Kenmare, perhaps there's a work happy hour at CrossBar, or a relative who couldn't resist the Groupon deal at At Vermilion. Don't despair. We've compiled a list of the salvageable dishes at some of New York's most notable poorly reviewed restaurants to help those in a shitshow emergency.
