Situated on the corner of Annunciation St and Webster St, in what was once a grocery store, Clancy’s is a local fan favorite for traditional creole cuisine. Chef Brian Larson serves up delicious culinary options guaranteed to satisfy your palate. The dining rooms are bustling with waiters dressed in tuxedos and patrons merrily winding down from a busy work week. The ambience of the interior of Clancy’s reminds us of a smaller version of Galatoire’s.
Our menu selections included Sweetbreads Facon du Chef (seriously one of the best preparations of sweetbreads we’ve experienced), a cup of the Soup du Jour (Cream of Garlic Bisque, topped with two perfectly crispy fried oysters), Kale/Shaved Brussel Sprout/ Roasted Beet/Candied Pecans Salad, Pannee Veal Annunciation (atop a bed of creamy pasta alfredo, accompanied by sautéed vegetables) and the evening’s special, which consisted of a filet of Pompano, prepared to perfection with skin on one side. Our meal was accompanied by the sinfully delicious, hard to reject, perfectly crispy loaves of traditional New Orleans French bread. One other side note: we’re told that the softshell crab preparation is a must. Unfortunately, it was not offered during our visit.
If you’re looking to experience what we as locals label a true New Orleans culinary experience, this is your place! Reservations are a must (call at least a few weeks in advance for prime-time seating) unless you’re able to grab a couple of first come-first serve spots at the bar.
