Peking duck at Decoy in NYC
We were told that Decoy had some of the best Peking duck in NYC. We booked the duck dinner for two ahead of time for the first round of dinner of the day. This dinner comes with the choice of two small plates off the menu – we went for the foie gras strawberry tarts, see above, in the shape of a little duck; and the oxtail dumplings. They also provide some fried fish skin ‘chips’ with three different kimchi style banchan – mango was my favorite! With the duck/wraps, there were two interesting sauces in addition to the usual hoisin sauce, a raspberry-based and a satay-like. My favorite was still the hoisin. You also get a rice dish included with the duck dinner, we opted to get the truffle egg, which unfortunately was really mostly egg and not very truffle. Drinks – ‘Year of the Salty Dog’ was adorable, with a little paw print in the foam. Fred was not very impressed with the meal, but to be fair, we had just come from Per Se so everything paled in comparison. Check them out on Yelp or at their website!
