500BestSquareSugar & Spice Duck Breast @ Restaurant August

A dish along the same lines as this one appears, with variations, on almost every menu at Restaurant August, the flagship restaurant of the John Besh restaurant group. That’s the goodness of a restaurant like this one. The kitchen has some distinctive ideas that it mixes and matches with current market ingredients. The effect is one of familiarity and originality at the same time. The crisp duck skin, the battalion of seasonings, and the subtle sweetness is ever fascinating, particularly in wintertime.
