I love duck.
Where have you had a hound-worthy duck dish?
Dinner, app, salad, taco, dumpling - I don't care.
Will Work For Duck.
Favorite was at Talula (don't know if it's still on the menu). Seared duck breast (asian inspired, maybe 5-spice) with peanut butter mashed potatoes. Oh my!
I just had the most amazing duck dish at a new place called Rise Asian Sushi in Boca. I don't remember the name of the dish, but it was roasted, fried and served with a chili sauce. Check it out. The sushi is excellent too.
Gourmet Diner in North Miami always does a very nice simple roast duck, w/ side of roasted potatoes and a vegetable souffle.
I happened to just mention the roast duck w/ figs, gorgonzola, & lavender at North One 10 in another thread.
The Pacific Time duck salad is one of Mrs. F's favorites. I believe they also have a duck 2 ways as a main which I've never had.
Les Halles does a confit leg served over a frisee salad with crispy little brunoise potatoes (dressed with a little truffle oil, natch) which is reliably good (which I cannot say about everything at Les Halles).
Timo in Sunny Isles used to have a great duck salad on the menu (rosy slices of breast over spinach & red onion in a mustardy dressing) but I think it's not been on the menu for a while. They often have a duck entree as well, but I've found their duck preps to be somewhat hit or miss (sometimes can be too tough).
I had a very nice green curry duck at Tamarind Thai on Normandy Circle a week or so ago - meant to do a post, we've had some very good meals there recently and the place has been growing on me.
MGF&D almost always has a duck confit on the menu - it's good, but not one of their standout dishes.
I was underwhelmed by the roast duck at Hong Kong Noodles (formerly Jumbo on 163rd St).
Michy's usually/always has a nice duck confit served with a frisee salad, quail eggs, and lardons.
Tropical Chinese has a great peking duck served traditionally; first the crispy skin in pancakes with scallions, cucumber and hoisin, and then also served in a stir-fry w/ onions and peppers.
David at Chinatopia (hollywood circle) has always done a great crispy fried whole duck.
Also, we usually order a peking duck salad when at China Grill.
I know it is asian-centric but it is duck...
The magret de canard at Le Bouchon in the Grove is incredibly good. I believe George's also has a duck dish but I havent tried it yet. The Grove is loaded with Frenchies!
