Thelma on Clinton

Thelma on Clinton is Chef Melissa O'Donnell's latest New American restaurant. Named after her grandmother, the restaurant focuses on small plates and eclectic flavors.

"In keeping with a from-the-heart-and-home mentality, O’Donnell will also be debuting several “from scratch” offerings: A new smoker will turn out house-kippered salmon, and charcuterie gets a makeover with merguez sausage with labne and mint and a seasonally tweaked rabbit terrine with juniper, allspice, and bacon. And above all, O’Donnell’s menu will draw from the cultural diversity of the neighborhood without straying too far from her deeply-rooted, straightforward approach to cooking. “In my heart of hearts I’m a minimalist,” she says. “I always have been. I don’t like to make things complicated. It’s one of the reasons I originally named Salt ‘Salt.’”- The Village Voice

"This restaurant was brought to our attention through Blackboard Eats though we did not use the coupon for this Saturday evening dinner. We are international diners and bring a level of experience with us but I must say, across the board, that the food was very, very good. We felt the smoked duck was terrific as well as the cod and salmon larger plates. We also enjoyed the risotto and the curried vegetables, which were not overcooked as can sometimes be the case. We thought the bread pudding was tasty but might have prefered a little more sauce. Four diners shared 2 small and 3 large plates, 1 dessert plus bread and wine, which was fine. We are definitely returning to this restaurant."

"We went for dinner on Saturday. We had a very friendly and attentive server. The dates wrapped in bacon were divine. The pearl onion risotto was delicious and so was the cream of cauliflower soup. We tried the salmon. The cucumbers that it is served with is a great addition to that dish. The codfish grandmere was a hearty, flavorful dish. But the best thing we had may have been the napa cabbage side with almonds. What a great, fresh flavor dish! We had some great cocktails also. Adorable place. Will recommend it to friends."

"Great find in the east Village. Welcoming staff and cozy feel. The very definition of a great neighborhood restaurant but well worth the cab ride from Midtown. Excellent sharing menu, well stocked bar and wine list with reasonable prices. Will most definitely return."

"Had a great Valentine brunch with my daughter among a mixed crowd of daters, families and friends. The atmosphere was energetic and fun. Even though it was literally the coldest day of the year and a little chilly inside too, no one left and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. The food was cooked perfectly. And I highly recommend the Bloody Mary's"

"If you need a dinner date spot on a Friday night and want to make sure it's good but not too loud (so you can have an actual conversation) this is your spot. I booked it blindly since I wasn't too familiar with restaurants in the area. Cocktails were top notch and the food was delicious. It's pretty much the perfect balance that I look for in such a situation. As soon as I walked in there I was like, "Okay great, this is exactly what I was hoping for." Good times."

"Went to this place while in NYC as it was recommended on a few web sites. It is in an u"untidy" part of the Lower East Side. The place had one other table occupied on a Tuesday night and the waiter was super-friendly and welcoming. It is a "small plate" restaurant and the menu is a little confusing but was explained by our waiter. We ordered pickled egg and dates wrapped in bacon all cooked in a tiny open kitchen. The pickled egg had no real pickle taste and was overpriced but the dates were excellent. We also had Thai vegetable curry, short ribs, salmon in miso sauce and risotto. The salmon was nice and tasty, the short ribs very oily, the risotto was excellent but the curry lacked any taste and badly needed salt.
We ended with creme brule that was too runny to eat . It was sent back and replaced with another dessert at no charge. Overall the place, food and service was good but a little too eclectic for our tastes. The cost was high for the quantity and quality.

"Quaint, tiny little restaurant with surprisingly unique and unforgettable fare. When we arrived we were honestly in awe as to how the tiny little kitchen was capable of being so quick and serving such generous portions. We couldn't have been more wrong. The risotto was one of a kind, the cauliflower soup was a truffle dip for our side potatoes and our smoked trout salad was phenomenal. Bartender was super nice and gave us drinks on the house because the beer was a little flat."
