As a pancake, omelette ,eggs benedict, scrambled eggs, french toast, waffles lover ahh forget it as a breakfast lover, I’v always been looking forward to visit Clinton Street Baking in NYC. What made me excited is the fact that any restaurant with a queue outside the door is worth the wait don’t we all agree 😉 ?? In fact the place has won so many awards since they opened their doors in NYC in 2011by the couple Neil and his wife Dede. In March I’ve been invited to their private tasting with the founders here in Dubai but due to some projects couldn’t attend.
The moment they opened their doors I was beyond excited that they finally did & I made sure to check them out. When I entered and checked the menu I asked about the owner Hisham who is been known all over the media . I was really shocked when someone pointed her finger and was like this is the owner. Surprisingly he was busy taking customers orders and serving other customer table. When I had the chance to congratulate him on the opening and introduced myself as a blogger,I realized he is down to earth with wonderful personality. Other thing, what made me really fall in love with the place is the warm family vibe, apparently the owner Hisham’s brother Ashraf is working there as well as a co-owner. I couldn’t help but to notice the family vibe all around, with the owner Hisham and his brother Ashraf and Ashraf’s wife Abeer and their beautiful two kids Zoya & Ahmed.
Now let me talk about the real deal the food 😉 in one of my visits, I made sure to invite my
New Yorkers friends to check out the place and see how good the food is, we were all really not disappointed, the quality of food , the vibe & friendly staff an experience that anyone will
look for.And in time I became one of their regulars and I don’t recall ever having a bad meal at Clinton, it is such a unique experience for an all day breakfast spot. Few tips I would like to mention before I list down my experience with every dish I had. One try to avoid the weekend rush & 2nd the portions are really really huge & generous.
Note: salads are served for those who want to detox . Kale salad and beetroot salad didn’t try them yet but positive they are nutritious and good choice.

“I think Neil can be called the King of Biscuits.” —Martha Stewart.
