Owners Brad and Sue Hollingsworth and Brian and Mary Larson describe their New Orleans venue as a “neighborhood family restaurant,” but Clancy’s is a very superior example of the breed.

The hand-written menu features immaculately prepared modern Creole classics such as smoked pork loin with a green peppercorn and mustard sauce or veal with crabmeat and Bernaise sauce.

And the wine list is a mini-masterpiece—in the words of the World’s Best Wine Lists 2015 judges, it’s “a serious, meticulous, focused” list full of interesting choices.

Starting with a fine selection of grower and negociant Champagnes, it features deep collections of California Cabernet, Oregon Pinot Noir, and Burgundy (red and white).
