4 Clinton St New York, NY
The recipe for pancakes is relatively simple. As with everything that it is simple to produce, a great deal of art and craftsmanship is needed to make pancakes that truly excel and stand out an overcrowded offering.
The pancakes at the Clinton Street Baking Co. belong to the small and privileged group of ethereal pancakes. The plain pancakes with walnuts and maple syrup are the essential definition of this dish. Every bite is fluffy and almost melts in your mouth, releasing delicate flavors of butter and vanilla.
The pancakes are available also for dinner: a recommended option if you just arrived in New York with a 6 to 12-hour jet lag, or if you simply don’t like standing in the long lines that form in the morning.
And if you really don’t like pancakes, the eggs benedict on a house baked scone will convince you to stop at this great corner of the Lower East Side, where the ingredients are local and no compromises are made on the quality of food.
