Duck a la Presse
Join us for a classic dining experience of another time and era and transport yourself. Devined in Paris in the late 19th century by a man named Machenet, the inspired and sometimes considered macabre dish was made famous by Chef Frèdèric of the restaurant La Tour d' Argent.
While we cannot, in this country, serve the very traditional "strangled duck", we source our beautiful birds well and include the permissible innards. Excruciating detail and history can be discussed table side, as you enjoy the show. A whole roasted duck is presented, carved, with the carcass then "pressed" table side preparing your sauce for the dish. Served with seasonal accoutrement, the Duck a la Presse is best served and can be a meal for 2, or a course for 4.
$175 for a whole duck and accoutrement
Once confirmed, our special Duck a la Presse menu will be sent with course additions, flambée dessert options, and suggested wine pairings.

Submit this form to reserve your Duck a la Presse experience. We will be in touch via phone to follow up and confirm your date and time, as well as to get credit card information in order to complete, as only one duck is available per service due to the nature of table-side presentation, and our availability to do so.
***Due to demand, we will post updates about holiday availability here:
