Where's the Duck?

Is it just me and my imagination, but it seems as though very few restaurants serve duck any more. I hate to admit it, but I used to love "Duck a'lorange. (spelling?).

I did enjoy a duck sous vide at Rumor Mill during the summer. But, I am looking for the "old fashioned" way it used to be prepared.

Any comments, suggestions, etc.? FoiGras

  1. Dino always has duck on the menu; in fact, they're doing a Quack-to-Tail dinner there next Monday.

    1. L'Auberge Chez Francois will probably meet your needs. You'll want to make a phone call to confirm this. The menu on the web site only lists some representative entrees and duck a l'orange isn't one of those mentioned. However, the entrees that are listed are all true classics.

      Incidentally, fine spelling.

        1. Not the "old fashioned way" but I can recommend the Duck Duo at Meli in Fell's Point.

          1. I disagree - almost every restaurant has duck in some form on the menu right now. Duck a l'orange is a little rarer, but duck in general is VERY popular.
