Duck Confit at Balthazar

  • 1

I had the Duck Confit at Balthazar in February. I was blown away. Best I've ever had.

I order the DC there every couple of years. It has always been excellent, but this time it was better still.

Anybody have a clue what they might be doing. I have their cookbook so I have the recipe, but mine surely doesn't taste like theirs.

I get my duck legs from Hudson Valley Foie Gras. Balthazar's duck legs seems larger than that of HVFG and too D'Artagnan. Anybody know where Balthazar gets its duck legs?

  1. Wowzers. I have always wanted to try their duck confit and your review has my mouth watering. The only thing is that they serve it with potato chips which I am not a fan of. They should do roasted potatoes instead.
