Just woke up w a craving for pancakes. Drawing a blank for good pancakes in the EV. Peels is my only thought so far, and its usually a zoo... Ideas. Quick, Im hungry.
Thanks all. Actually ended up going out to Roberta's. Great ricotta pancakes to follow their great pizza. Was happy w the outcome.
I'd add on Veselka and Five Points, both will be crowded.
Second Prune's Dutch baby, Clinton St Baking Co, The Smith.
-----Five Points31 Great Jones St, New York, NY 10012
Veselka144 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003
Probably too late but The Smith would work especially before noon.
Okay, so it's just barely not EV, but I think Clinton Street is the pretty obvious winner here. Also, I know Prune has them on their menu.
It's Sunday though... Everywhere is going to be a zoo.
It's been a while, but Prune's was the Dutch-casserole (or something like that) pancake. More cakey in texture and character. Not as good as Clinton's, imho.
Yeah, it's a Dutch baby... One giant cake rather than the fluffy traditional stack of pancakes, but I still thought it was worth mentioning.
Fwiw, Prune churns out good savory stuff for breakfast, though.
I think the best thing on the menu straddles both: a deep fried Monte Cristo sandwich dusted in powdered sugar, served with currant jam. Mmmmm!
