Duck, Duck.....(and probably fish for me)

My Hubby and I want to celebrate passing the Bar this Saturday night. Favorite dish is Duck. Any suggestions for a nice duck dinner on short notice? We'll go anywhere in the city or in Cambridge.

  1. King Fung, in Chinatown! Or Peach Farm in chinatown does a pretty good one as well.

    1. Congrats and condolences. If you are going to be working for a white-shoe, multi-national law firm, go to Salts in Cambridge for their duck (though that is duck for two). If you are working for a small firm, Evoo has Duck, duck, goose on its menu - always well lauded on these pages. If you are working in public interest law or a non-profit, go to Dok Bua for the duck larb.

        Congratulations on passing the bar!

        I'd have to second the many other praises for EVOO. My boyfriend ordered the Duck, Duck, Goose (Duck Confit, Seared Hudson Valley Duck Foie Gras, Slices of Goose Breast, Lentils, Little Green Beans, Verrill Farm's Wilted Greens and Sherry - Ginger Sauce), which he said was really out of this world. I love duck but hate ordering the same thing when we eat so I had the Chinese Box - cheesy concept but delicious!

      2. I had the Peking duck at Peach Farm recently ... it's really really good and doesn't require ordering in advance.

        1. I may be one of the few that was less than wowed by the duck at Salts. I think you might like a quiet romantic comfie spot with a varied menu, so my suggestion is for EVOO's 'Duck Duck Goose' or Gargoyle's Cashew Curry Duck w/ Coconut Rice in a Banana Leaf. Both restaurants are handsome and comfortable (not tiny and crammed like Salts) with banquette options.Their staffs are welcoming and friendly and efficient and their menus are diverse and intriguing. Parking is easy for both. Have a lovely celebration after such a long haul of hard work!

            I also recommend Evoo's Duck, Duck, Goose.

              I was also less than wowed by the duck at Salts. The well-done breasts and thanksgiving turkey style of the whole meal was kind of dull. Gargoyle's duck wing drumettes are fantastic.

            2. I've heard good things about duck three ways at Rendezvous in Central Square - but haven't tried it myself.
