Peking Duck House

Your waiter parades the roasted duck past your party before

placing it on the center show table. A chef brandishes his knives dramatically, then slices the aromatic, crisp-skinned, succulent meat with great flair. Folks at other tables drool with envy. (Don’t they know that this establishment doesn’t require you to order the specialty in advance? Pity.) Select the “three-way,” and your duck will yield the main course (complete with pancakes and plum sauce for rolling up the goods), a vegetable stir-fry with leftover bits of meat and a cabbage soup made with the remaining bone. Yes, the menu lists many dishes besides Peking duck, but reading it will only delay the inevitable.

One of Chinatown's fancier restaurants but still holds true to its authentic taste. A bit pricier than some of the hole-in-the-wall restaurants but worth it if you want to have a nice dinner with friends or a quiet lunch since they're not as busy as some of the other restaurants around lunch time. I recommend the crispy duck that comes with home made buns that are quite good and enough to be a starting dish for 3-4 people.
