Duck Confit, Beech Mushrooms Poached in Garlic Butter with Thyme & Rosemary, Goat Cheese Potato Croquettes & a Concord Grape and Bacon Emulsion Sauce
"For the sake of full disclosure, let me say that I've rarely met a duck that I didn't want to eat. That being said, the duck at Rue de Jean is pretty amazing. Traditionally, you will see duck paired with cherries, but chef Aaron Lemieux has a new take on the dish. Rather than cherries, Lemieux serves his duck with a grape and bacon emulsion sauce that gives it an entirely new and exciting flavor."
