Duck and Buvette’s 1st Anniversary

Duck and Buvette - Duck Confit

Contrary to popular opinion I don’t really eat out that often. When I do go out I like trying out new restaurants. I’ve eaten in several restaurants once and only a few restaurants get a repeat. I’ve eaten in Duck and Buvette about 4 times already so you know it’s on my go-to restaurant list. It’s a […]
