Tea smoked duck

Have a friend coming into town this weekend that really misses this dish in Chicago. We will be at the Art Institute on Saturday. Is there anywhere somewhat near that would serve this for lunch? I'm totally unfamiliar with the dish.

    From the Art Institute, Le Lan is a French-Asian fine dining restaurant one mile north which has it. Three miles south is Chinatown, where you should be able to find it at various Chinese places, including Lao Sze Chuan.

      Thanks for the info but sadly Le Lan is not open on for lunch and Lao Szechuan doesn't have the dish for lunch. Any other suggestions?

        You might also arrange ahead of time with Lao Sze Chuan (or any other place, including the two mentioned by lbs) for them to have it available for you, even if it's not on their regular lunch menu. Call ahead...
