Where can I find this? Chinese, German, any style. Thanks.

    I used to get the goose at the old 14 st Luchow's in Manhattan. I know they moved to midtown about 20 years ago. I do not know if they are still in business, but, great memories of roast goose with apples.

      luchow's closed a number of years ago....the charm was really lost in the move to midtown, but it was still a cool option. the silver swan near gramercy park does a really good roast goose these days.

          Zlata Praha in Astoria is pretty much it in my experience - sorely wish Chinese BBQ goose were available...

            we used to get chinese BBQ Goose at (now closed) Sun Golden Island in Manhattan. It might be a chiu chow or hakka thing, some of their dishes were.

            Have you ever asked one of the BBQ shops if they would do a goose for you.?

              No, actually. Really should do so. I cook at least one a year at home (it's my husband's favorite poultry). Should also look into Chaozhou and Hakka restaurants here, if any there be.

              the one time we went to Zlata Praha, the food, including the goose, was terrible! This was quite a few years ago, tho. Has it improved?

                FYI, I called Rolf's German restaurant in Manhattan and they will be serving goose starting after Thanksgiving.

                  This was a while ago as well. The goose wasn't as good as homecooked but it hit the spot for my husband. My food was passable.

          don't know if you're looking to cook it at home or not, but the butcher block in sunnyside carries great geese at a great price. they're easier to cook than turkey. had one a few weeks ago and it was amazing.

            Thanks, sounds good. But I'm looking for cooked goose.
