59. Poached Duck Breast at Rusty Pelican
It hardly looks like a duck. Looks more like sushi, to tell you the truth. But wrapped within those nori-looing leaves are pieces of tender, juicy Long Island duck breast slow-cooked to an intensely delicious flavor. The "nori" is actually Swiss chard, and each roll of duck rests upon a puff of parsnip puree pooled by a glossy sauce accented with Grand Marnier.
Chanterelle mushrooms and duck skin cracklings, and spears of fried parsnip add textural contrast. The dish goes for $28, and it is clearly the most distinctive presentation of duck in town. The dazzling waterfront view from every seat in Rusty Pelican ;comes at no extra charge.
