Duckfat is a small establishment specializing in hand-cut Belgian style fries fried in locally sourced duck fat. These are served with an array of house made sauces, we selected the Truffle Ketchup and the Thai Chili Aioli. The menu is small, the offer a few entrée salads and a selection of Panini in addition to their milkshakes. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon around 2 pm and there was a line outside waiting for a seat. They do not accept reservations but they offer a text back system to alert you when your table is ready via a wait list.
The 30 minute wait was definitely worth it, the fries were everything they promised to be. I also had the Overnight Duck Confit Panini. This was done with pickled pears, mixed local greens, and an herbed mayo. Will chose the special Panini that day which was their version of a Cubano and it was executed very well. The bar serves a small selection of beer and wines and had we not been so full I hear the milkshakes are to die for!
