Black Duck Restaurant Review

: This Flatiron District restaurant goes for haute, but what's on the plate doesn't always match the aspirations. Still, the woody tavern-like interior with a colonial feel makes for a pleasant vibe. Try the pan-roasted half chicken with wild truffle mushroom risotto or pear-glazed Long Island duckling. Entertainment includes live jazz on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as James Bond flicks on Sunday nights for those who want a little 007 with their martinis.
