Peking Duck: Really no awesome options?

randymac88 | Feb 19, 2012 11:14 AM

Hi everyone. I have a friend's birthday coming up, and we have had the idea of doing Peking Duck for a while. There are five of us, and we're all food and restaurant people. We like to eat. And, the birthday girl has some pretty high standards.

I've been doing a lot of research on here and elsewhere, and it seems like there's no real consensus on the best place for a good Peking Duck experience. It sounds like Peking Duck House and Amazing 66 are generally the two go-to places. But, I also read about a lot of negative experiences at both of them as well.

So my question - are these two really still the best options? Its just hard to believe that in a city like New York there is nobody that really nails it, at any price. Seems like PDH reviews a bit better than Amazing 66, so we may just end up there, but would appreciate any updated intel. Budget is no obstacle for us. Thank you in advance!
