A true New Orleans classic, hidden in a converted house on Annunciation Street, Clancy’s surpassed my wildest expectations. The service is fantastic, the atmosphere is divine, and the food, well the food is just as impressive as the former.
For starters the crab salad with hearts of palm, fresh tomatoes, crab meat and a horseradish sour cream dressing, is a dish I could eat everyday. Historically I have not been a fan of horseradish, but this salad was perfection. We then shared a plate of fried oysters with brie on a bed of cooked spinach. The oyster-brie combination was also surprisingly good, with the oysters practically melting in your mouth. For entrees we got the Stilton (blue cheese) Filet Mignon in a red wine sauce – kudos to the red wine sauce and perfectly cut steak, but the Stilton was a little much for me. All in all, if I could eat here everyday for the rest of my life I would. If you go, get reservations before hand since the bar area is small.
