Community Food & Juice Misses the Mark Again

February 20, 2008

It’s Pancake Month according to Gridskipper.com. So when my family told me they’d be coming into Manhattan for breakfast, NYC Food Guy said “Community Food and Juice“.

Community, the UWS healthy/organic sister of Clinton Street Baking Company, serves the same legendary pancakes and French Toast as its sibling, the latter of which I enjoyed a few months back.

My previous enjoyment, however, came with some displeasure. The Grilled Cheese wasn’t melted well and the fries were soggy and weird. Community was a few weeks old at that point, so we chalked it up to finding their groove. Unfortunately, I felt the same way today, months after “finding their groove” lost its lease as a valid excuse.

Community Food & Juice: The healthy UWS Clinton St. Baking Co. needs to find its groove

November 26, 2007

Community Food & Juice is the healthy, organic Morningside Heights sister of the LES’s Clinton Street Baking Company, home of what the NYC Food Guy considers the best pancakes in New York.

While Community needs time to find its groove, the Brioche French Toast with caramelized bananas, roasted pecans & warm maple butter ($12) was dead on.
