And the brunch at Clinton Street Baking Co. & Restaurant (4 Clinton St, NY, N&) is beyond truly outstanding! It's one of the few brunch spots where I'm willing to wait 2+ hours for a table. I know it sounds crazy but if you want truly exceptional blueberry pancakes and huevos rancheros, than that's what you gotta do.
A couple of weekends ago, Sunshine and I sucked it up and waited (and waited and waited) for a table. It was well worth it! Here's what we had:
- Huevos Rancheros: We each ordered our own...so as to preserve the relationship. ;) The star of this dish is the chorizo - very addictive.
- Blueberry Pancakes: This we shared. Initially, Sunshine was humoring me with this "side" dish but I'm pretty sure he ended up heating 2/3rds of it. I'm pretty sure that Clinton St has the BEST blueberry pancakes in the city. They're kinda crispy around the edge and have an inherent sweetness to them (rather than a flour-y taste). It goes without saying that they're light and fluffy. The warm maple butter is heavenly.
