Duck Confit at Balthazar

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?

    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.
