Clinton Street Baking Company at Citywalk, Dubai

What started out as a place for superb baked goods in New York transformed quickly as word spread that chef-husband Neil Kleinberg and his wife DeDe Lahman were churning out wholesome, yet delicious meals. Clinton Street Baking Company in Dubai invited us to experience their signature dishes; here’s how it went…

We sat in a booth indoors, but there is ample seating outside in this large, but cozy eatery. We ordered crispy potato skins loaded with cheese and beef bacon and served with a delectable dipping sauce made of jalapeno and sour cream. The roasted pumpkin soup was another starter we tucked into, served with sourdough bread which was really satisfying.

Our mains were some signature classics—I tried the buttermilk chicken and waffles served with a buttery maple syrup. I loved the merging of textures and flavors with the crispy and tender with the sweet and salty; I also tucked into their famous jalapeno cornbread which was spicy, yet sweet. Then the classic omelet which I had with mushrooms, cheddar cheese, and beef bacon, served with sourdough bread and delicious hash browns. The Clinton Street Food truck burger was a made-to-order beef patty with the trimmings and cheese nestled in a freshly baked bun and served with coleslaw and fries. The best part is that this place bakes everything on the premises, and that includes the breads, the muffins and desserts.

For dessert I tucked into an old time favorite—pecan pie with a flaky crust, served with organic vanilla ice cream. Another old-time favorite was the decadent brownie sundae; a choice that is never wrong. And whether you’re in the mood for flavors like maple pecan, strawberry shortbread, apple pie or the unique spiced Japanese pumpkin – Clinton’s Pancake Month has got you covered! The New-York born bakery and restaurant is dedicating the entire month of November to one of their signature items on the menu – PANCAKES.

The Verdict: Not only does this place have the most wonderful all day breakfasts, but serves up some great specialty items in large portions sizes, like fried chicken, waffles, pancakes, and pies. Our server Jennifer was friendly, and was on hand to suggest some of their superb dishes.
