Fork in the Road’s Favorite Pancakes in New York City


It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Pancakes.

“Clinton Street Baking Company’s blueberry, hands down. I eat them maybe once a year, just to be reminded of their excellence.” –Rebecca Marx

“I make them at home with full-fat farmers’ market buttermilk and rich free-range eggs and let the batter rise for a half-hour, so the pancakes are incredibly light. I’ve just never found any half as good at any restaurant.” –Robert Sietsema

“Clinton Street Baking Company’s banana-walnut pancakes. Fluffy and no-holds-barred on the toppings!” –Lauren Shockey

“I haven’t ordered pancakes in years but Clinton Street Baking Company is pretty much the last one I remember and the one place I’d order them again.” –Chantal Martineau

“Tom’s Diner in Brooklyn has pretty solid pancakes.” –Victoria Bekiempis
