  1. Love the duck confit at Bar Ferdinand. They have both a salad and a tapa with cherries.

    1. Mmmm.. I love duck confit.
      the only one i've had in philly was at Parc, though.
      Overall - good, but not great. It wasn't the duck so much as the entire plate; there was some sort of lentil salad that made the plate too salty.

        I ate that Duck in Lentil stuff at Parc also, and I also did not like the Lentils! Everything else I ate there was pretty good though.

          I hear that Fork's version is very good.

      2. Standard Tap routinely has a duck salad on their menu: it's a simple, well-dressed salad with a confit of duck leg.

        It's also dead easy to make and lasts just about forever. I have two legs packed in fat in my fridge right now that I made last November.

          thats the best way. a nice salt cure with good spices and good herbs. fat from SAME animal. and preserved for months to let the flavors know eachother. you can tell the confit that was made that morning vs a well thought out confit

        2. I haven't tried it myself, but I just noticed that Sugartown Smoked Specialties at the Wayne Farmers Market has duck confit.

          1. The Chef at Bistro La Minette makes his own...I can still taste it from the cassolet from a month or two ago and just thinking about it is getting my mouth to water.


            call ahead, his menu changes often, just to make sure he has it on for that night.
