When chef-husband & wife, Neil Kleinberg and DeDe Lahman, opened in April 2001, their only mission was to make the best baked goods in the city, hand-mixed in small batches. But soon the locals stumbled in, and murmurs of Neil’s simple yet delicious omelets, sandwiches and soups moved people to cluster — then crowd — the block. New York Magazine voted Neil’s blueberry pancakes best in the city (twice!).
The lore about our brunch lines we cannot deny ... but try us at dinner, when the lights are dim, the crowds calm, and the food is “anything but ordinary,” says the New York Observer. Okay, and yes: We serve pancakes after dark.
We are grateful for the rave reviews Japan’s Clinton St. Baking Company’s breakfast and lunch offerings have received. Over the weekend our restaurant comes alive with a rich international atmosphere - giving it an almost New York-like feel. For those customers seeking a relaxing dining experience, we recommend stopping by for dinner as well. The low-lit nighttime atmosphere of our restaurant makes it the perfect dinner spot for couples or friends on their way back from work. Stop by and experience it for yourself! Our famous pancakes are offered throughout the day.
