THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shorty's.32 Restaurant Review

: Steps away from West Broadway and its mall vibe, Jean-Georges Vongerichten veteran Josh Eden runs Shorty’s.32, a cozy neighborhood bistro named for the chef’s stature and his 32 seats. Classic rock, a wooden bar, mullioned windows and an eclectic collection of hanging lampshades create the illusion of patina. You can choose comfort and simplicity---a crackling but moist roasted chicken resting on cottony mashed potatoes or a stout burger---or perhaps crispy braised pork belly with cranberry bean salad. But if you fancy sophisticated prowess at good value, let yourself slide slowly towards the velvety Jerusalem artichoke soup, or go for the roasted cod with delicate Gruyère broth and caramelized onions served over a slice of toasted bread, a deconstructed upside-down onion soup.
