    1. Zinc in New Haven sometimes has duck.

      1. Loa sze shuan (sp?) in Milford it is on the Post Rd across from Whole Foods, for Tea Smoked Duck. further up the road in Orange there is the Peking Duck House

          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.

          1. re: DMW

            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

        2. Union League Cafe on Chapel Street, New Haven serves an excellent Duck Breast

          1032 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT 06510

          1. 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.
