Roast Duck La orange
Will be in the Arcadia-Pasadena area next month. Can anyone suggest a restuarant that serves a good Duck with orange sauce. One of my favorite dish but haven,t had it in years.
Duck L'Orange is such an old standard that hardly anybody offers it anymore, certainly not a cutting edge chef; however, there is maybe just one in your requested area:
Stoney Point Restaurant - (West) Pasadena
To get a sense of this place read this blogger's pictured review:
La Vie, on San Gabriel Blvd. in Rosemead.
I went there for the first time the other night, and I can't believe it's taken me this long to visit this little gem of a restaurant. The menu is truly a "greatest hits" of classic bistro cuisine: we're talking duck in grand marnier (orange) sauce, poulet a l'estragon (chicken in tarragon), coq au vin, pork tenderloin, trout meuniere...you get the idea. Dinners come with a bowl of the house soup (I upgraded to onion soup gratinee) and a classic butterleaf lettuce salad. Just about everything is under $20 as well. Even had a nice bottle of some Cotes du Rhone for only $21. I can't wait to go back.
The place is located at 2547 San Gabriel Blvd, in Rosemead. It's a few blocks south of Garvey, if I recall correctly. It's EXACTLY what you're looking for.
