Nice Peking duck restaurant in So Cal?

Need to find a nice restaurant that serves Peking Duck for an engagement dinner. Anyone know of a good place?

    Given the Dept. of Health codes/restrictions "real" Peking Duck is near impossible to make in the States.

        Well, Quanjude made it for about 6 years. And they settled for a C rating. BUT Dept of health codes vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction - there's no uniform code so far as I know.

        and quanjude's ducks were great - open-hearth roasted.

          Just make sure you call to order the duck an hour ahead of time.
