We mentioned a couple weeks back that Summit chef Eddie Lau was launching an ambitious-sounding restaurant-within-a-restaurant at The Summit. It's called Dux, and the plan is to do a series of menus throughout the year, with one seating a week, at The Summit's bar, on Sundays only. For those who follow the underground dining scene, this is already a tough reservation to get (the inaugural series is currently sold out through the end of June, though there is a waitlist), but we managed to score one off the waitlist to check out what Eddie's been up to. The inaugural menu is all about duck, from eggs to foie gras and everything in between, and the flavors across the five dishes were varied, balanced, and in some cases refreshingly original. See our full slideshow, including our favorite dish: the Dux poutine.
Dux - at the bar at The Summit, 780 Valencia Street - Sundays, promptly at 7 p.m. Seating is extremely limited, and you will want to get on Eddie's mailing list and/or make a waitlist request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
