What restaurant has your favorite duck?

I was going to title this thread 'Quack about your favorite duck' but thought better of it

Anywhoo...lets see if this thread takes flight (sorry).

Brigstens? Upperline? Lots more choices, I'm sure!

      Thanks again EC. Did I read somewhere that Irene's is hard to get into - no reservations, long waits?

      1. re: leetmom7

        minimal reservations, moderate waits during peak seatings (ive waited longed at Jacques-Imo's)

    2. I love duck, and one of the best duck dishes I have ever had was the vanilla scented duck at Luke. My wife, who is not a big duck eater, thought it was the single best thing she ate in our wonderful week of eating through NOLA. Not sure if it's on the menu all the time, but it's worth a try if it is.

      1. My vote would go to Brigsten's. And, if I recall correctly, Brigsten's across the street neighbor, Dante's Kitchen has (or had) more than one good duck dish.

          I had Brigsten's duck and it was excellent.

        2. We dined at Irene's last night. We showed up ten minutes before they opened (5:30) - there was a short line, soon it was pretty long - we were about fifth in - and we were seated immediately.

          DH and I ordered the duck - OMG - perfect heaven, I think I like duck now!

          One down, two or three more to go!

            is, was, and will always be Chef Sonnier's version @ Gabrielle

          2. For a change of pace, grab a duck po boy at crabby jack's, across the Jefferson Parish line.

              And for a different change of pace, check out the duck at Tan Dinh. So scrumptious.
