The Clinton Street Bakery is oh-so-close to debuting its expanded dining room. Eyesore no more, as the eight-month stay of plywood is officially concluding. Workers pried a large portion of the shed from the corner facade to reveal the updated exterior. It’s a far cry from Min’s Market, which closed for good last year.

Owner Dede Lahman had previously told us that launch was set for June; add three months. Indeed, Lahman sent us confirmation that the dining room debut is now tentatively set for September 15. Here’s a look inside.

As part of the expansion plans, the current dining room will be reconfigured to accommodate takeout and coffee, with some limited seating options. Sit-down service (ie approximately 23 chairs), however, will shift to this larger space at 2 Clinton Street. And full liquor is part of the offering. Community Board 3 approved the application a year ago, despite its complicated footing in a saturated area. It was then that co-owner Neil Kleinberg admitted the company had its eye on the cornershop since the very beginning. But the longstanding Min’s Market had always been in the way.

Jury is still out whether the enlargement will alleviate or further exacerbate the queueing outside Clinton Street Bakery.
