At Pierre Gagnaire’s only restaurant in the Western Hemisphere, the food easily matches — and sometimes surpasses — that of Robuchon, Savoy and others. Take the Muscovy Duck. Barely medium rare and thinly sliced, the duck is served with cracked green peppercorns and a whiskey jus. Dotted about the plate are caramelized D’Anjou pear and pine nuts, all playing against the gamey flavor of the duck. On the side is an eggplant cannelloni filled with duck confit, wrapped almost like a dolma. All the major players in this dish are perfect examples of earthy fall flavors in fine balance.
