Tel: 504 895 1111's insider take:

Buried in the maze of the side streets in Uptown's Riverbend neighborhood, Clancy's is one of the more unassuming restaurants in the city, which seems to suit its loyalists just fine. It's another of the "secret clubhouse" restaurants that locals often keep to themselves—and on any given night, the older crowd reflects a genteel, somewhat subdued ambience. The fried oyster starter with melted brie would be considered rich by any standards, but the addition of lemon beurre blanc puts it over the top. The pan-seared veal topped with a silky béarnaise sauce melts on the tongue. And in keeping with local evening tradition, a rich meal can be bookended with cocktails that don't skimp on the active ingredients: A perfectly made Sazerac works well as a predinner warm-up or a postprandial simmer-down.—Pableaux Johnson
