The time has finally arrived.

Clinton Street Baking Company is set to relaunch this week with the much-anticipated expanded dining room. It’s an event nearly two years in the making, a story we first broke, and have been chronicling since April 2014.

Co-owners DeDe Lahman and Neil Kleinberg are inaugurating the new space – 2-4 Clinton Street – on New Year’s Day. Just in time to nurse that head-splitting hangover.

This corner storefront at East Houston was previously occupied by Min’s Market, a long-running local bodega. In recent weeks, the exterior was officially branded, rounded, painted red, and accented with corrugated siding, further evoking that classic diner vibe. Dedicated menu boards are now visible inside the new dining room, too. There is also a matching red bench on the Clinton side, already attracting ass.

As part of the enlargement, the current dining room will be reconfigured to accommodate takeout and coffee, with some limited seating options. Sit-down service (i.e. approximately 23 chairs), however, will shift to this larger space at 2 Clinton Street. As you can see, there is also a second bar with several stools. And full liquor is part of the offering; license is live.

Clinton Street Baking Company first opened on its namesake street in 2001. It’s even expanded internationally to Singapore, Tokyo, and Dubai.
