  • 2 Duck Goose
    400 Fourth Ave., 347-987-4808, Gowanus, Brooklyn
    Gowanus is quite the destination these days what with the intriguing Morbid Anatomy Museum, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club and restaurants like 2 Duck Goose, a play on the children's game duck, duck, goose. Chef Ben Pope's menu is adult, though, based on his Hong Kong background. Highlights include Cantonese whole roast duck with sour plum compote (which needs to be ordered in advance), char siu (roast pork) with ginger-scallion sauce and black sticky rice pudding with coconut milk, toasted sesame seeds and coconut flakes. The small, spare, whitewashed bistro is packed at night (reservations are highly recommended), but it's a breeze to score a table at brunch when there's delicate duck fried rice with poached eggs and a Cantonese lobster roll with ginger, daikon and shiitake mushroom hash.
