As a staple on the breakfast and brunch menu, it’s easy to produce an average and dull pancake. Special attention paid to the syrup, butter, filling and especially the batter has the power to create an indulgent pancake. An order is often too filling to get for yourself. Our solution? In addition to our egg based dishes, we almost always get an order of pancakes to share. [Nic & Shails]
Blueberry Pancakes at Clinton St. Bakery
Simply amazing! The lines outside this no reservation establishment can be quite ridiculous with wait times of up to 2 hours. However, the pancakes are well worth it and we suggest coming for dinner when the line is more manageable! Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? Light, fluffy and moreish with every bite. The pancakes come as a stack of 3 with just the right amount of blueberry jam in the center and a side of maple butter which is drinkable on its own.
Dutch Style Pancake at Prune
Again, be prepared for a decent wait – this place never ceases to be popular with the brunch crowd. All food we have tried here is extremely well prepared, but a stand out item is definitely the Dutch Pancake. One large individual pancake adorned with pears, baked in the oven and cake-like just as dutch-style should be.
Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes at L’Artusi
Ricotta is one of the perfect compliments to pancake batter. It’s mild, light, and provides the perfect blank canvas for any flavor profile. These pancakes are dessert-like in consistency, but not overly sweet. Although dinner here overshadows any other meal- and for good reason, it’s one of our favorite spots in the city- the brunch at L’Artusi stays true to the Italian cuisine and the pancakes alone are worth the earlier visit.
