The Duck Inn
For a chill date night out, this celebrated Bridgeport tavern is the stuff dreams are made of—especially if said dreams involve chef Kevin Hickey’s signature Duck Inn Dog, a satisfying combination of beef and duck fat smothered in Chicago-style fixings. Served on a poppy seed brioche bun, you’ll probably want to pack extra floss, just in case.
This venerable South Side tavern has Christmas dinner covered this year with a heat-and-eat Irish-tinged banquet for four lucky lads and lasses. Choose between all-natural Prime Rib blanketed in mulled red wine sauce and a Whole Rotisserie Duck, flanked by Duck Fat Yorkie Pudding, Creamed Kale, Irish Cheddar Potato Casserole, and Sticky Toffee Pudding slathered in whiskey-spiked cream. Duck yeah.
