duck confit

  • j

What are some restaurants in Manhattan that offer a great duck confit? Just got back from a trip to Paris, and I already miss the food...

    Gascgone on 18th and 8th does a great version. I am sure there are others

    1. All the usual fancy food stores carry confit you can finish at home. All you need is a broiler and 10 minutes.

      1. This seems to be my night for recommending D'Artagnan. (Another poster above was looking for foie gras.) The restaurant serves all things duck related, including confit.

        1. I'm not a confit expert, but I had a tender, delicious one at Le Gigot, on Cornelia St. in the West Village.

            A gem of a restaurant: good, fairly priced wine list; great frites.

          2. I go for the very satisfying duck confit (the restaurant i think is often overlooked) at La Lunchonette on 10th Avenue. Great classic, perfect for a cold and rainy day french food and ambiance. i have spent afternoons there very happily dreaming of France, and very nearly fooling myself into thinking that I'm nokwhere near New York.
