Report: Clinton Street Baking Company Will Expand Next Door Within 3 Months
Two months ago, we first brought word that the Clinton Street Baking Company was set to expand its operation into the vacated Min’s Market on the corner. Ownership neither confirmed nor denied our story at the time, which is, of course, implicit confirmation.
However, we now we know more about the efforts here.
Boogie tipster RobbieTheK learned from staff just the other day that the build-out should kickstart within three months’ time. The annex in question is indeed the former corner bodega which shuttered in April.
Apparently, access to the restaurant as we know it will change during the expansion. The current dining room will reportedly switch functionality to takeaway, with the old Min’s geared toward on-premise seating. To that end, a connection point to the adjoining space is planned for the back area near the bathroom.
Do you think this strategy will actually alleviate the overcrowding?
UPDATE: Owner Dede Lahman refutes the entire rumor, except for the keystone piece that they are indeed expanding. We’ll see what shakes out.
