Grub hears that Ed Schoenfeld's Peking-duck-centric mini-restaurant officially opens tonight below RedFarm but as a late-night bar only. For now, Decoy will serve a menu of hand-crafted cocktails and bar snacks (a mix of classic RedFarm dishes and new ones, like double-duck wraps) from 9:30 p.m. to 1:45 a.m., every night of the week. Between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m., Decoy will function as an extension of RedFarm, and serve the restaurant's regular menu. Once Schoenfeld feels comfortable with the operations at RedFarm UWS most likely in January or early February he'll debut Decoy's permanent Peking-duck dinner menu and begin to accept reservations. The ducks will be cooked to order in the custom-made Peking-duck oven, and timed with guests' arrival. Sit tight: You have to wait just a little longer to not wait at all. [Earlier]
