roast duck for Thanksgiving, on the Peninsula

Sushi Monster | Nov 3, 2012 07:58 PM

Hello Hounds. My family and I are resolved to find a more flavorful alternative to turkey this year. (Short story: Too many leftovers for turkey/green chile stew with the consistency of balsa wood.)

I'd rule out R99 in Cupertino and Foster City out of hand. My other starting point on this quest would be Marina Super near Norfolk/Hillsdale in San Mateo. I've picked up really flavorful half-ducks there at least a half-dozen times. Not sure how in-demand duck will be for Thanksgiving.

Ideally, I'd like some ideas for roast or smoked duck where i could make a pre-order/reservation and be assured it'd be there for me for Thanksgiving pickup. Any ideas?

Thanks for your consideration.
