Decoy Restaurant Review

: Ed Schoenfeld and Joe Ng have turned what once was a quasi-subterranean Laundromat into a sleek eatery underneath their West Village dim sum gem, RedFarm. Decoy’s focus is mainly on one item: Peking duck. Crispy on the outside and tender in the middle, the duck is indeed the star of the show; it arrives via a communal plate on which you and your dining companions may nosh. The duck also comes with crab- and scallop-laced fried rice and Decoy chips, which are really fish skins. There is also a compendium of small plates that should not be missed, particularly the palate-arousing foie gras strawberry tart and the luscious oxtail dumplings. Beverage options lean toward cocktails and the barrel-aged Negroni is a winner.
