Ainsworth Owner Looks to Impart ‘Clancey’ on Clinton Street

After a withdrawal last month, the new restaurant proposed for the old Yunnan Kitchen space on Clinton Street is back on the Community Board 3 agenda next month to pitch for full liquor. As previously reported, it’s a project by restaurateurs Todd Birnbaum and Dennis Bogart.

Now that the applicants have submitted their proposal to Community Board 3, a more complete picture is coming into focus. Contrary to what the original notice to the neighborhood indicated, Birnbaum joined Bogart to create Clancey, a fifteen-table restaurant that serves “eclectic American” fare. It’s pitched as an “approachable” establishment that will be an “amenity” to the neighborhood. The menu consists of standard bar food such as burgers, grilled chicken, and seafood like fish and shrimp. There’s even a children’s menu.

The arrival of Clancey won’t alter much of the layout, though, save for some “cosmetic changes.” Otherwise, expect something very similar to Yunnan.

Note that Bogart’s pedigree includes The Ainsworth on West 26th Street and The Hill on Third Avenue in Murray Hill. These are both large establishments with a more nightclub flavor.
