I love a great pancake and the best I've had so far are at Cafeteria -the lemon ricotta. Since much has been made on this board about Clinton Street Bakery and their maple butter pancakes - I went off today to try Clinton Street's pancakes.
First off - love Clinton Street Bakery - the feel of the place is wonderfully relaxed (in a crowded ny sort-of way). Other dinners' dishes looked mouth-watering and I will certainly go back there to eat. But the pancakes - have to say - a little disappointing. The maple butter syrup was the let down. People rave about it - and to each his/her own. For me - it was too greasy tasting and not sweet enough. No moan factor on the pancakes - but will be enticed back by what I saw others served (grass always greener?) ... despite the "preciousness" of Cafeteria - those lemon ricotta pancakes make me moan in culinary delight.
