Duck is my favorite dish. I get it whenever I can find it on a menu, which seems to be mostly at French restaurants. When in Paris, Ben and I had the opportunity to eat at La Fermette Marbeuf. It is one of the most gorgeous restaurants I’ve ever eaten in. The Belle Epoque room had a stained glass ceiling and ceramic designs on the wall. The room eventually ended up being walled up and forgotten about until 1978 when work next door revealed it’s beauty. In 1983 it was listed as a historical landmark. The restaurant is a few blocks away from the Champs Elysee, hidden from the tourist crowds. I enjoyed the tasting menu that came with seared duck foie gras, blue lobster bisque, duck breast with a grape polenta, and their famous Grand Marnier souffle. If you have the chance to visit it, I recommend not missing out. If you are staying in the US, I recommend recreating it with this equally delicious Duck with Plum Sauce and Asian Pears dinner.
