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.
