Took a friend for his b-day last nite, first time since the change of ownership. Full at 8:15, very cozy. Appetizer choices weren't all that exciting, he got foie gras ($18) when they were out of some porcini ravioli and my taste was good. Their little salty rolls are excellent, wine served in nice big glasses. We had the infamous duck, as did about 2/3 of the restaurant. Quite a presentation with the carving at the table, served with carrots, an apple, and stuffed with bread and giblets. The crispy skin is always a joy. But it was very rich, couldn't even think of doing dessert. Had a taste of his chocolate cake w/ cardamon ice cream which seemed fine, maybe a little dry. Good service and a very nice meal. Didn't really study the menu that much but there was a pork dish that looked great, most items in the high 20s (duck for two is $60). Total w/ 3 glasses of wine was $116 before tax & tip. Have always had good luck with whatever restaurant is in that location.

On a much more casual note, the sandwiches at City Feed by Stonybrook T in JP are pretty nice. Got a turkey salad w/ cranberries, almonds and herbs on Iggy's brioche. The herbs were maybe a little overpowering but it was a large, well made sandwich. $6.99 for that special, most others are $4.99 and $5.99.
