For lunch today I joined an adventurous lady friend of mine and went to Feast, a local British style "nose to tail" gastropub style restaurant. Frank Bruni came to town to review it and really liked it. One of today's specials was roasted duck necks. To our surprise and a little bit of trepidation, they showed up 3 to the plate with heads and bills attached. We called them Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

I recommend them highly. The meat from the necks is really tasty and not gamey at all. We also had roasted pork neckbones in an spicy oniony gravy. For main courses we had roasted pork belly with a potato galette and red cabbage, and a fish pie made with scallops and haddock with leeks and a mashed potato crust, with roasted baby Brussels sprouts. A good Spanish garnacha, and then coffee and Sweet Toffee pudding with clotted cream for dessert.

To quote James Bond,

"Savagely exotic"... says the NYThanh :-.P I didn't know duck's head is British?

OK, SHADES HO', confession time: Those shades are what? You look like a m'f**** don of sex, you Stiva, you. I. LOVE. IT.

And that jacket is what? I kinda like it, too (at least, in the pix).
