Sitting Down for Dinner at Decoy


Don't let the wash-and-dry Laundromat façade fool you—you'll find Peking duck, not pressed shirts, at Ed Schoenfeld's birdcentric restaurant and cocktail bar, located beneath RedFarm's West Village flagship. The kitschy space features duck hunting decoys, 180-year-old red-brick walls and 22-seat barnwood communal table. Starting in January, chef Joe Ng will crisp the poultry to order in a custom-made tandoor oven and serve the quacker with paper-thin, house-made pancakes. In addition to China's national dish, the menu is padded with upscale bar bites like roast duck wraps, soup dumplings and lobster-claw tempura, complimenting a bar program of Asian-accented quaffs like an yuzu-infused Caipirinha. See the bar menu below. 529 1/2 Hudson St between Charles and W 10th Sts (212-691-9700)
