FINE DINING ON CLINTON STREET (between Houston and Delancy)

For the last week I have been raving about all of the oh so cute spots on Clinton street.  I didn’t get to try them all, but the food I did sink my teeth into was fantastic.  No need to dress up for the LES, just come hungry!

Clinton Street Baking Company: Known for it’s brunch, but serves amazing American food all day.

Frankie’s 17:  Has been on my NYC Favorite Italian list since I first visited over a year ago.  The prices have gone up a smidge for their classic dishes, but still totally worth it.  A GREAT DATE SPOT – unique location, good food, intimate atmosphere, and affordable!

Donnybrook:  This bar (which should be serving food shortly) takes me back to living in Notting Hill.  Local crowd makes for a good happy hour or pre-dinner drink.

San Marzano:  BYOB pizza place that will deliver to Donnybrook.  I wouldn’t say it’s the best pizza, but if you’re around the area, definitely stop in.

Fat Hippo:  Probably the most creative, satisfying, affordable full meal I’ve had in a while.  The pulled pork stuffing is out of this world.  Don’t expect to just walk in, people are catching on.  

Alias:  I didn’t get a chance to go, but Sarah insisted I add it on the list.  Apparently their fried chicken is finger lickin’ good.

NEARBY RESTAURANTS ON RIVINGTON: Verlaine (lounge + food = a good time.  Order the calamari) and ‘inoteca (another Sarah favorite for Italian, but a little too crowded for me)
