Egane & Clive's on Bedford Street, Stamford

Was downtown today on Bedford Street stuck in some traffic, when I noticed a new place across from Temple Bar - Egane & Clive's. I haven't noticed it before, so I am guess it is new? Has anyone been here, I'd love to hear what you think. There seems to be three menus going on - Korean, pub food and oyster bar....

  1. I think someone posted on this a while back that Egane was merging with this Clive's place. I find the whole idea bizarre.

    1. Interesting. Egane has been there for a while (3 or 4 years at least). We've been many times for the Korean BBQ (basically a small propane grill in your table), and like it a lot.

      I don't see how this new combination is going to work. Hard to get my mind around a place that offers Guinness Burgers next to Bulgoki ...

      1. Just went to the web site. Very interesting concept. Almost like they were sitting around one day after not having a lot of customers for the Korean food and somebody says, "hey let's make burgers."

        "All of our burgers are topped with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions" . Mayo? Think they got off the wrong stop on the F train. And all of them are marinated, one in guiness. How the heck do you marinate a burger in a beer?

        Hey jfood wishes them luck and if he is in the area always willing to try a marinated anything, but this is going to be interesting, please have ketchup available.

        1. I was weary about the concept at first, but I tried it anyway. My husband had Korean food and I got a burger that was seasoned to perfection. I noticed that most tables seemed to order from both menus. I'd recommend it. Maybe next time I will get oysters.

          1. How strange. This beats the strange combo of Corelli's Restaurant which is a half Haitian, half Colombian restaurant in an old Italian pastry shop.

            Egane has been a great korean place in stamford for a while. I really like it.

            I guess they thought by merging that they would open themselves up to those couples who had very different tastes?

            Actually, now that I think about it, it might work for me. I love korean. My wife, not so much so... Hmmm.

            still bizarre though.

              Just looked at the menu and it is so ying and yang with the prices and the food. But a new burger in town, I need to hear if the burger is great or not, thanks. I am always looking for an excellent burger. Do they deliver?

                I went to Egane once and found it VERY pricy. A teeny order of beef was over 20 bucks, and I don't recall it coming with much else to round out the meal. Is my memory faulty? Can you get a decent amount of food for under 20 bucks there?

                  I used to order bibimbap there and it was, if I remember correctly, about $17. And it was very good. It's a little pricey, but on par with the Korean places in the city.

                  I can't speak to other dishes and, admittedly, it's been about 3 years since I've been there.
