This weekend I had my second visit to Swoop House for their Fowl Play meal. It was AMAZING. It was duck heaven.
If you haven't been to Swoop House, let me start by saying... It isn't a standard, walk in and sit down restaurant. They have scheduled events, where they have a specific chef plan a meal, then they sell seats for that specific event in advance. So you never get the same thing. It is a really great concept and makes it a lot of fun.
Onto Fowl Play... While everything was ridiculously good, I have to make a shout out for the Seared Duck Breast dish, it was so incredible and the cauliflower was beyond divine. My other big call out was the Smoked Duck & Julienned Roots appetizer, I have never had anything like it. The duck had this nice smokey, almost bacon like flavor to it and the crunchy interior with the kick of the vinaigrette was to die for.
In addition to the food, the house is adorable, and it is such a beautiful setting to spend a relaxing evening!
