      Does Clancy's have a web site? I think I'll add that on my list for next month.

    2. Dick and Jenny's was very good, the food is very rich. Gumbo is very good, some of the best I've had in a restaurant.

        Clancy's does not have a website. They are only open for dinner and closed Sunday's but they do serve lunch on Thursday/Friday. It's a neat neighborhood restaurant and Patois is just a block away. It's outstanding. It kind of reminds me of Galatoire's sometimes when it gets busy. Emeril told me once it was his favorite NOLA restaurant. And there are no bears around there. It is close to the river in case you want to go fishing.

          It's close to the zoo too so I could swing by and pick out a bear on the way back to the hotel. :-)

          Ok, Clancy's it is. I think for lunch on Thursday maybe. Or maybe a dinner. We usually eat one meal a day and a snack at night but when in NOLA, we sometimes get in two meals.

            It's a long hike if you are in the FQ I guess about 20 minutes by car. Does not bother me. I go the long way down St. Charles for the scenic route and my wife always gets to walk Magazine a while too. It can get busy at night. There's no parking. You will go S on Webster off St. Charles. You will have to find a place on the street that does not block some one's drive. Good luck Have fun.

              I always love the drive through the garden district. We'll be there Mon-Fri so shouldn't have much of a problem parking, etc. We usually eat lunch real early or real late to avoid the crowds. If the weather is good, we'll do some walking but not to Clancy's - lol. The street cars always fascinate me. My grandfather was a street car conductor during the depression.

        Go around the corner to Patois - much better food, better ambience

          What is better about Patois? What do they serve?

            Duck, pheasant, rabbit, et al. Chef likes to hunt. Clancy's is classic NOLA cuisine.

            I cannot agree that the food is "better" and I think Clancy's ambiance is wonderful.
