Looking for great Peking Duck for night of my bachelor party on Saturday, Sept. 03 (Labor Day weekend). The quality of the duck is the most important thing, followed by service, price, and atmosphere in order of importance.
Price is not a *big* concern, but we don't want somewhere REALLY pricey. Looking at the menu for "Mandarin" (in Ghirardelli Square) it's pricier than others I've seen but not out of our range.
So I've heard Yuet Lee and Hing Lung both offer great food, both in Chinatown and both authentic and cheap, but the decor and atmosphere are also cheap? (and Yuet Lee may not offer peking duck?) So might not be too impressive for my once-in-a-lifetime bachelor party with old friends coming in out of town? But hey if the food's amazing that's what matters most.
And Mandarin apparently has great peking duck (but maybe not much great else on the menu?) and great views? But also in "tourist trap" Ghirardelli Square on a holiday weekend...
What do you all think? Or do you recommend another restaurant for Peking Duck? Thanks!
