Review: Though Chop Shop is located slightly out of the way for the non-Chelsea dwelling crowd, here you’ll find a cozy nook that’s got an interesting take on some solid Asian fusion. Both Thai and Chinese influences lead to a lot of yummy dishes that combo some great flavors. We came here shortly after they opened and had not gotten their liquor license yet, but they graciously suggested places nearby where we could grab some beers or wine to bring in and have with our meal. The one downside is that the portions are on the small side so you’ll want to order several plates to fill you up. Overall we were met with a generally friendly staff who were happy to talk about their new menu and provide us with some suggestions. As an added bonus for the spring/summer months, they have a nice outdoor garden space in back.
