About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - 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: ... 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

The restaurant was closed on the day of my reservation. We called, and despite standing in front of a closed gate, the automated message insisted that the restaurant was, in fact, open. Not sure how I was able to book a reservation for a closed restaurant.

My grandmother's nursing home has better food than this. The man running the brunch hour was very nice and the menu looked delicious: it was an epic disappointment. The biscuits were hard and tasteless: the jams somewhat interesting but they were served in containers that other people had used and scraps of other food were in them. The cappuccino was burnt and tasted worse than one made at a Holiday Inn. The bacon were three slabs of thick fat. It was absolutely the most disgusting meal I've ever had in New York: I'd put fast food a step ahead.

I ask for a reservation at 8:00 PM and you only have at 7:30 or 9:00 PM an there is not other table all night long

Food came out in a broken sequence. Took a while before plates were cleared. Table was left I cleaned after meals were completed. I left smelling like the kitchen, not my favorite.
Host/waiter was very sweet, looked short-staffed during my visit.

Small intimate room seating maybe 50. Open kitchen was fun to see. Service friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic, with small plates for our group of 4 to share. Will go back.
