You don't know flapjack until you've sampled these one-of-a-kind stacks.
While everyone may consider Clinton Street Baking Company’s flapjacks to be the gold standard in the city, there are griddle cakes outside that five-hour brunch line that are just as worthy. And unlike your mom’s, these varieties aren’t limited to chocolate chip, blueberry and banana. So instead of heading to IHOP to get your pancake quick fix, check out one of these haute hot cakes around the city. —Cristina Velocci
