Serendipity 3

Another eccentric NYC institution, this was one of Andy Warhol's favorites. They have a full menu, but are known for their sundaes and desserts. I am not much of a dessert guy, myself- but they are delicious. Decor is fun and eclectic.

Shopsin's http://shopsins.com

From Wikipedia:

"Shopsin's is known for both its extensive (900-item) menu of unusual dishes concocted by chef/owner Kenny Shopsin, including items such as "Slutty Cakes", pancakes with peanut butter in the middle, and "Blisters on My Sisters", similar to huevos rancheros, and for Kenny Shopsin himself, described by Time Out New York as "the foul-mouthed middle-aged chef and owner."[3] Among Kenny Shopsin's quirks are his very specific rules, including a firm rule that the restaurant will not accept parties of more than four people. "Pretending to be a party of three that happened to have come in with a party of two is a very bad idea," wrote restaurant regular Calvin Trillin."

The food can be excellent- just take some time beforehand to browse their insane online menu, give yourself an idea of what you'd like.
