Delish Duck Dishes on Long Island
February 10, 2023 | What To Do
Duck is like the best of both meats. The raw meat looks like red, while it becomes more like dark meat after being cooked. Duck has been eaten since the days of the Ancient Chinese and Romans 2,000 years ago, and we don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Here are our four favorite duck dishes served at Long Island restaurants.
Chef and Founder Guy Reuge always finds a way to include his famous duck on Mirabelle’s ever-changing menu. You can currently order the duck tacos appetizer, featuring hoisin sauce, pickled daikon, jalapeno, cilantro and scallions and the Mirabelle duck duo entree, featuring caramelized endives, potato confit, spinach and watermelon radishes.

The LakeHouse is an elegant and spacious restaurant, and during the winter months guests can enjoy dinners by the fireside and lively waterfront brunches in the bay breeze. The breathtaking deck overlooks the Great South Bay, and is the perfect setting to host a special event. The Long Island duck breast and crispy leg confit with apricot wheatberry pilaf and pomegranate pistachio glaze is beyond delicious.
No matter the season, Noah’s is here for you on Long Island’s scenic North Fork. The Crescent Farm duck confit with sweet potato puree, roasted cauliflower and pomegranate molasses and Crescent Farm duck BBQ with pulled duck, aged white cheddar grits and scallions are both fantastic. Stop at Noah’s after your next wine country visit!
