A decade ago, it was considered as daring as the name to venture down the alley into this restaurant’s almost hidden entrance. Now that the neighborhood is fully gentrified, it’s a little harder to snag a table on weekends. What hasn’t changed is the cuisine: simple, seasonal ingredients brought together without too much fuss. Duck breast is moist inside, crisp outside and comes with tasty duck confit ravioli on a bed of caramelized onions, wilted arugula and Asian mushrooms.
