I just had the most amazing duck dish at Chez Henri for dinner earlier tonight. It's sliced duck with a citrus pomegranate sauce, on top of spätzle and baby bok choy. I don't usually rave like this, but even just two days after suplerlative Peking Duck at Fuloon, this was a duck dish to remember. The duck itself was juicy, fatty, and flavorful; the sauce was much better than it sounds, and even the bok choy and the spätzle had this wonderful texture that paired so nicely. Several of our party ordered this dish, and we all cleaned our plates.
I usually think of Chez Henri as a competent and reliable if not particularly special neighborhood restaurant (particularly since it's in my neighborhood!), and that's how most of the rest of the meal was. But this dish (along with my mojito) was really something to savor. It's not on the regular menu, but was a New Years special on the board. I hope they keep this one; I'd call first before going if you're going specifically for it, but if you like duck, I'd try to get over there soon.
