February may traditionally be dark and dreary, but it's hard to despair when Clinton Street Baking Company's is kicking of their annual pancake month celebration. Blondie and I are Pancake Month vets so I was excited to see that the schedule is always posted on CSBC's website...
Here's the pancake line up:
1st & 2nd: crunchy bananas with cinnamon-chili-chocolate sauce
3rd & 6th: poached pears, vanilla bean whipped cream, warm maple butter
7th, 8th & 9th: almond frangipane, fresh raspberries, toasted almonds, raspberry sauce
10th & 13th: Japanese pumpkin pancake, pumpkin seed streusel, warm maple butter
14th: chocolate chunks and brandied Burgundy cherries
15th 16th & 17th: banana pancakes: Bavarian cream, toasted coconut, and warm maple butter
20th, 21st & 22nd: crunchy bananas, cinnamon-chili-chocolate sauce
23rd & 24th fresh coconut pancakes, kumquat syrup, bruleed bananas
27th, 28th & 29th: chocolate chunks, fresh raspberries, raspberry-caramel sauce
The special pancakes are ONLY served Monday through Friday from 8am until 4pm and 6pm to 11pm. And if you're not a fan of the particular pancake of the day, they do have their famous wild Maine blueberry, banana walnut or chocolate chunk, with warm maple butter pancakes on their everyday menu.
They only take dinner reservations for parties of six or more and if you're going with that big a group you'd definitely want a reservation to avoid a long wait for a table.
If you time your visit wisely you can make plans to coincide with Fried Chicken & Waffles Wednesdays. It's best to go with a friend so you can go halfsies on pancakes and fried chicken and waffles. I hope we can find the time to go a couple of time this year...
