Sometimes you just want a good cocktail and something wrapped in bacon on a toothpick. Clancey serves up upgraded versions of gastropub staples along with cleverly named cocktails such as the rum based “Who’s Watching My Kids?” ($12) and bourbon-filled “Drunk at Gray’s Papaya” ($12). Starters are decently sized portions of classics such as burrata and grilled calamari. Made for sharing though their daily “Something Wrapped in Bacon on a Toothpick” is served up in individual portions at market prices. Signature starter dish, Yesterday Lo Mein ($12), upgrades the tried and true leftover take out dish with tangy chunks of pork and veggies toppling out of a takeout box- quite literally!
Entrees keep in the elevated comfort food theme with items such as the Truffle Grilled Cheese with Asparagus, served w/a Runny Egg and Mesclun Salad($14) and Shrimp and Grits ($23). But, you can’t go wrong with the Obligatory Burger ($16).
With daily drink specials, elevated bar foods and a relaxed downtown vibe, Clancey is the perfect backdrop for a happy hour with friends or weekend brunch stop.
