An exclusive Uptown dining choice hides inside this unassuming corner location near the river – Clancy’s is a favourite spot for celebrations and couples’ nights out, serving classy Creole and Cajun food. Unless you grew up attending Mardi Gras balls, you may feel like an outsider here. The Creole restaurant, however, lets you observe social habits not seen outside the Crescent City. Watch the action from the bar, and then move to a linen-covered table for dinner. Tables on the side wall offer the best view. The room is decorated with caricatures of local personalities, a few of whom are probably dining at Clancy’s that very night. The kitchen excels at seafood, and many call Clancy’s fried soft-shell crab the best in town.
