The origins of menu ingredients are reassuringly scrawled on a blackboard at this pioneering West Chelsea restaurant. Cookshop particularly shines at brunch: Relax in a bamboo chair and tuck into fruit and house-made yogurt ($11), baked sunny-side-up eggs with applewood bacon ($13), or much to the little ones’ delight, gluttonous walnut-raisin French toast slathered with vanilla-mascarpone cream ($14).
