    For Chinese duck dishes, any of Clinton's Taste of China, Shangri La (Guilford) or Lao Sze Chuan (Milford) will do fine. Cafe Routier (Clinton) always has good duck dishes, as do Le Petit Cafe and Union League. Thaali (Indian) and Oaxaca Kitchen (Mexican) in New Haven (same management, very different cooking) offer more unusual choices.

    Le Petit Cafe
    225 Montowese St Ste 7, Branford, CT 06405

    Union League Cafe
    1032 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT 06510

          We went to Peking Duck House a few months ago and thought the duck was pretty good. It did not bother my stomach at all, as peking duck sometimes does.

          How is Loa Sze Schuan? It is on my list of places to try.

            It is the best Chinese in CT, I have been there 2-3 times and always had a great meal. Give it a go.
            My one experience with Peking Duck House was good
