Roast Half Duck

VaughnRmnE Sep 15, 2012 05:26 AM

OK, call me "old fashioned", but every so often I get a yearning for Duck l'orange or other variation of this classic.. And La Goulue (formerly my standy for this) has taken it off the menu and replaced it with Duck Breast - just not the same!

Are there any other CHers with this particualr food fetish in the Miami -FLL area who could recommend a restaurant with this on the menu?

    I've not been in quite some time but Gourmet Diner on Biscayne around 135th has always had a nice roast duck. No orange sauce, just a half roast duck, crispy skin, tender flesh.

      Looks like cafe de Paris on Los Olas serves it. I am not a fan of either the dish or restaurant so can't comment on it's prep or execution.

        Le Comptoir, in Hollywood, lists "Duck al range . . . two duck legs topped with a orange liquor glaze served with rice and vegetables" on their menu. I haven't been to the restaurant, but the Trip
        Advisor, Yelp and Urbanspoon reviews seem decent.

          Not exactly what you are looking for but the crispy duck at Rice Asian House in Sunny Isles is awesome

            Chef Andrew Swersky of the Forge always has an excellent duck on the menu.

              Try Sage Cafe and Oyster Bar on Harrison St downtown Hollywood. I had the roast half duck there a few weeks ago, but it was a little sweet for me what with the raspberry sauce and mashed sweet potatoes, but skin was crispy, service was excellent and Sunday is half-price wine night.

                Sage in Fort Luaderdale also has it. I sub out the sweet mashed for regular mashed potatoes so i don't get all that sweet. They also do buy one get one free dinners on Mondays and Tuesdays. Great deal.
