Clementine specializes in gourmet European foods, fine gifts, and delightful treats inspired by the beauty and soul of the countries of the Mediterranean. Imagine a French bakery combined with a New York café: Quaint tables, clear glass deli cases, a colorful boutique marketplace, and a sleek bar coexist in a beautiful, large space defined by tall, white walls. Entrées, specialty salads, and other delicacies can be ordered to go. In another deli case, luscious sweets such as lemon, chocolate, and fruit tartlets, as well as eclairs, croissants, napoleons, and French macarons are masterfully displayed to tantalize the taste buds. If you choose to be seated for brunch, breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Clementine's menu is equally creative and delightful. Dishes change seasonally to offer the freshest local ingredients. Weekend brunch features Baked Egg Ficelle, a mini baguette filled with fluffy scrambled eggs and Gruyère cheese, baked and topped with sour cream and chives, among other options. The lunch and dinner menu includes soups, salads, pasta, flatbreads, panini, tartines, and steak and seafood dishes all done with a Mediterranean twist. There is a daily happy hour with a bar menu featuring small tapas plates, a popular cheese plate, and the Musabaha (whole chickpea hummus) with falafel. The brand new bar Piccolo, sitting at the center of the dining room, crafts cocktails such as the Cucumber Mule and the Spritz. Clementine's home gifts section is stocked with imported goods that include wine, vibrant tablecloths, napkins, lavender soaps from Provence, and Moroccan spices.
For large dinners and parties, Clementine offers a new catering service to bring its exotic flavors home.
