      The seared breast at Cave Vin is also stellar.

        I second the duck at Alma. It stood out among my 3 courses as being REALLY good.

          I third the duck at Alma - delicious. Strangely enough, though, I also had duck leg confit and seared breast at Porter Creek in Burnsville. While the duck leg was very tender, it didn't really qualify as confit, but for the price it was very delicious. The sides were not great, but, again, for the price one can get their duck fix without breaking the bank.

            I had an amazing duck tostada for breakfast($9), and the server mentioned they will be serving duck much more frequently there, for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
