Any chance of finding woodcock, Becasse, on a NYC menu next weekend (December 8 or 9)?

Looking for an opportunity to taste woodcock on this side of the Atlantic. Might there be one? Merci!

    Picholine has game birds at this time of year. I'd suggest calling and asking about woodcock.

      Ah.. okay well you beat me to it. I asked anyways in case you hadn't the time. Got referred back to here. I've not been to Picholine but it has a very strong positive review both on here and in the NYT.

        Picholine would be my suggestions as well. If anyone will have Woodcock it would be them and at this time of year. I am almost certain I had it a couple years back during their game bird season.

          I went last week and the game choices were partridge or hare, but it does change and it's probably worth calling.

          I was just at Picholine on a Sunday and it sounded as if there was a choice of three starting with squab and going up to wood pigeon but I don't know if that is the same thing.

              So, garliclady, were you able to find it?
