duck L'orange german or french style?

johnindabronx Nov 23, 2010 07:21 AM

Is there anywhere one can get a classic french or german style half roast duck l'orange or just a good non-chinese style roast duck anymore? I like Zum Stamtisch in Queens but they only serve it on saturday and it's a zoo and they sometimes run out early. Any other suggestions?

    Put in "a l'orange" into the menupages.com find-a-food search.

      I find the duck at Le Perigord to be one of the best. It's my favorite on their menu.

        Funny, Le Perigord is a favorite of mine in general! I usually order fish there. Duck it is for my next visit. Thanks!

        La Petite Auberge has a very good canard a l'orange, and the rest of the food is great too, especially the souffles for dessert, and the atmosphere is classic French bistro,.

          I enjoyed duck l'orange at Bistro Cassis recently. It's a special served only on Tuesdays, though.
