Annunciation, the new restaurant by former Clancy's chef Steve Manning, is now open, reports Brett Anderson. The restaurant is in the space vacated by Deanie's Restaurant back in March. Anderson popped in for a check at the menu:
Yes, the fried oysters with melted brie – a Clancy’s original that became a staple during Manning’s long tenure at the restaurant – are there, as is shrimp remoulade and turtle soup. But there is also lime and cilantro in the crab claws, coconut milk in the sautéed black drum, and salsa verde with the grilled hanger steak.No website yet for the restaurant, but it is on Twitter. Open 5:30-10:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Call (504) 568-0245 for reservations.
