2 Duck Goose Is Bringing Modern Cantonese Cooking To 4th Avenue

As development continues to add height to buildings along 4th Avenue, it has also been adding some new interest for restaurants to the busy stretch of road, attracting businesses that didn’t use to mingle between the repair shops and car washes. And the newest venture hitting the street may be one of the most exciting yet.

2 Duck Goose will be opening soon at 400 4th Avenue, on the corner of 6th Street, in the space that formerly housed Anthony’s on 4th. According to their website, they’ll be cooking like we’re in Hong Kong, serving up “classic Cantonese dishes with added European flavors, looking to French technique for inspiration.”

The menu, which doesn’t include prices, looks pretty delicious — from pineapple buns to stir-fired smoked tofu; “paper bag fish,” which is a branzino on a persimmon fondue with roasted shiitake mushrooms steamed in parchment paper; and a roasted whole Cantonese duck “feast” that you have to pre-order.

That plus some photos they’ve shared on their Facebook page, and we’re just going to guess that this is going to be a step up from the Chinese take-out joints we’ve been ordering lo mein from all these years (and which, of course, we’ll still enjoy).

We’ll be speaking with the folks behind 2 Duck Goose, who are looking forward to sharing their story with the neighborhood, but until we post that next week, if you’d like to get an early taste, they’re doing a soft opening with 5-course tastings, and seatings are available for this Thursday, Friday, and Sunday at 7pm or 8pm.
