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....

Went to Egane for dinner on Saturday night. Oddly enough, there is no sign of Clive's or any burgers on the menu. I wonder if they never actually went through with it, or if the marketplace let them know it was a lousy idea and they reverted to all Korean + sushi.
Had a nice meal. A few new Korean options on the menu, but basically the same. About 10 tables occupied (out of 20 or so) at 7:30 on a Saturday night, so I guess they are feeling the pinch like most others.
I thought it was a little strange too, but My spouse and I decided to try it out. I had the Guiness Burger, which I have to say is the best Burger I have ever had in my life! I really enjoyed this resturant, i went back last weekend for the Dinner and a movie package,if you haven't heard of it, , 3 course meal and a movie ticket, for 20 bucks. If you love going to the movies it a great deal. Also the Red Velevt cake Dessert was Heaven!
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 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.
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 ...
