My wife and I went to the Black Duck for New Years Eve. What a wonderful experience! We had a reservation.

My favorite meal/restaurant hands down after living in over 3 different states and several cities. Always an inventive experimental menu in a home style upscale atmosphere that leaves you feeling welcomed and unbelievably satisfied, intriged and palette tickeled.

I had the pumpkin bisque which was excellent as an app and for the main course I and my wife both had the half duck entree. We both agreed was awesome. Call for reservations the place is a little small but worth visiting if you are in the area.
