New Clinton Street Baking Company emerges from behind the plywood

An EVG reader let us know that workers have removed part of the plywood at the all-new Clinton Street Baking Company on East Houston and Clinton Street …

As previously noted, the pancake-line-waiting hotspot is expanding into the space last held by Min's Market on the corner.

Here's co-owner DeDe Lahman talking with Gothamist this past December:

The new space will boast 55 seats — up from 32 in the old space — which should help ease some of the brunch time congestion. Lahman says the old space will also stay open, eventually transitioning into more of a take out spot for coffee, baked goods and pickup orders. "The rest of the plans for that spot will take shape as we open the new space and suss out what will work for us and our guests," she explains.

BoweryBoogie reported this morning that the owners hope to have the expanded dining room open Sept. 15.

Does anyone know if the family that ran the bodega that had been on that corner found another space in the neighborhood? I felt bad for them having to leave even though one of the ladies wasn't always so polite!

Seems to me that Clinton St Baking is one of those places that's popular because it's popular. The food is good, but not great, certainly overpriced both in money and in the time spent waiting.

Maybe it's one of those places to see and be seen, or something like that.

Tourists love it, it's in all the guidebooks as a must-eat-breakfast-there place to go.
