New York City: Peking-duck feast at Decoy
Why We Love It: If you still haven't tried the prix fixe Peking-duck feast being sold in the space below RedFarm in the West Village, you're missing out. Chef Joe Ng does the classic whole roast Peking duck proud with his insanely delicious take, featuring skin so perfectly crisp and meat so moist, it doesn't need a drop of sauce (that's not to say that you shouldn't add a little cranberry compote or hoisin). What also stands out here are the housemade pancakes, which are made the old-school way — steamed until puffy and then smacked flat. For $65 a head, dinner for two includes two small plates, one whole Peking duck, one vegetable fried rice or one side dish — for the quality and quantity of food you receive, this meal is a steal.
