Ate there last nite for the first time in about 4 years. Not over crowded, my friend was already seated in the window table waiting for me. Entree prices aren't too bad at $14.95-17.95 while sandwiches w/ fries are a deal at $7.95. Good homemade bread and butter to start things off. My friend got a bunch of pints and a salad w/ toasted pecans and a little hunk of brie. I got a half a duck which was cooked perfectly, nice brown crispy skin and moist inside. Not too fatty, nice sauce with it but can't remember what it was right now. The not terribly friendly waitress said spinach came with it but the little green things on the plate didn't seem like spinach. Mashed potatoes were okay altho a little overmashed. One person was eating at that stand up bar but I'm sure his meal was as tasty as mine. Brought half the meal home and should have stuffed in some of the nice looking bread pudding for dessert ($5.95)

P.S. Had bought two small pieces of rugelach from Zathmary's beforehand which weren't bad and only $.80.
