Eater is reporting that West Village institution Shopsin's, which floated the idea of moving to Brooklyn this past spring, has put what remains of its lease ("6+ years... at well below market value") on the block. Speculates Eater, "One must conclude that Kenny has one of two things planned: retirement or a move to Brooklyn. In either case, the clock is now officially ticking on the Carmine Street institution." Either that, or some broker at Sinvin is having a field day with the Calvin Trillin set.
