Clinton Street Baking Company Pancake Month

This is not a useful thing for you to know right now, but it will become a useful thing for you know in roughly eleven months: February is Pancake Month at Clinton Street Baking Company. Every day they offer a different, amazing pancake, including a few with chocolate. For example, this year they offered one option that was German chocolate pancakes with roasted organic pecans, caramel, fresh coconut, and bittersweet chocolate sauce. And they offered this one on the day that my friends and I went:

"What is that monster?!" you are wondering. Promotional copy from the Clinton Street Baking Co.'s website tells us it's "crunchy bananas with cinnamon-chili-chocolate sauce." I would add that it's phenomenal. The chocolate sauce was so high-quality (and not spicy-- don't let that "chili" put you off), and the fried bananas were a work of art. Fried bananas plus high-quality chocolate sauce plus some of NYC's best pancakes equals one of my favorite meals of the year. Because, did I mention? It's pancakes. Not just chocolate. Therefore this is dinner. Not just dessert. Yes.

BOTTOM LINE: Time to start counting down the days until Pancake Month 2014...
