must-try duck dishes?

i'm looking for any recommendations for great duck dishes in boston. i read about a great-sounding one at aquitaine ("Sliced Duck Breast, Roquefort and Walnut with Ravioli Bacon-Braised Cabbage & Pumpkin") but recent reviews of that restaurant on this board have made me more dubious. any other suggestions much appreciated!

  1. The duck for two which is the signature entree at Salts in Central Square, Cambridge. It's wonderful!

      1. Jody Adams' Slow Roasted Suck at Rialto, in Cambridge, Ones of the best duck dishes I've had.

        I second the Salts rec.

          That's one of the funniest misspellings I've seen in a long time. Thanks for the laugh! (and the rec).

            a slow roasted suck? hmmm, should we report this??

            1. re: bgavin

              Sorry, I meant Slow-Sucked Roast.

        2. The duck for 2 at Salts is excellent but also expensive - sixty five bucks... on the other end of the scale you could also enjoy a delicious Roast Duck Wonton Noodle Soup for seven bucks at Quan's Kitchen in Boston.

            Another inexpensive option: Crispy Pad Thai Bangkok style (spicy) with Duck at Coconut Cafe in Newton Centre.

          2. FuLoon in Malden serves several duck dishes. Most recently I had the Keunming Duck in a nice not-too-spicy brown sauce. It was tender and tasty.

              I had one of the specialty-of-the-house duck dishes at FuLoon and it was excellent.

            2. The Soy Duck at Best Little Restaurant in Chinatown is insanely great.
