  1. There are no old fashioned French Haute Cuisine restaurants left in Los Angeles.

    1. In fact a 'find-a-food' search of menupages.com yields but one errant result, Almond Pressed Duck at Hunan Taste on San Vicente, which I trust is not what you want. Alas.

      1. You might try Taix.

        Even if they have it on the menu, it won't be very good, however.

          1. Why don't you just go to Josie's and get duck? It's not the duck you think you want, but it may be the duck you will like.

              Josie learned how to prepare duck from her father, whose restaurant I frequented back in the 1970/1971 time frame. I got the duck each time. It was done to perfection each and every time. Beautiful crispy skin and lovely moist meat.

                I remember it too. With a pepper sauce. Not sure if Josie has that sauce, but I think you can get it on request.

                Also remember their complimentary slice of quiche - (which I believe Josie also serves up).
