They seem to specialize in duck. There were four duck
dishes on the menu this weekend. The two that we
ordered were both excellent: grilled breast of duck and
duck with orange/raspberry sauce. Other dishes that we
tried and enjoyed included a mussels appetizer, cooked
in white wine with lots of shallots; a very nice pate;
artichoke & ricotta ravioli in a red pepper & cream
sauce; and I didn't take notes so I can't remember
Make reservations; it's a small place.
