Looking for a great French restaurant anywhere in the LA area and what better gauge is there than a succulent Duck Confit.

Or if you have a great French restaurant suggestion but maybe haven't had their D.C.

Suggestions?

    In last year, these have been my tops for duck confit:

    Michael's in Santa Monica
    Tasca on 3rd Street
    Church & State
    Lily's in Venice (not as good as others for duck but the other items were good french fare -it's not melisse but good and affordable)

        Agreed, the one at Church & State was pretty succulent.

          The duck at Comme Ca is pretty wonderful but if you're in the area the version at St. Amour in Culver City is serviceable and satisfying.

            I had that guy's confit when they still owned Angelique. Served it on a bed of spaghetti, which I thought a bit eccentric, but then Le Petit Cafe in Santa Monica serves it the same way. Both good, though a bit drier and tougher than the stuff I make. Less work, though!
