Ed Schoenfeld quietly opened Decoy below RedFarm on Hudson back in December, but last night, he finally began serving the restaurant’s signature large-format Peking duck. There will only be 24 ducks served per evening — at $65 per head — but Schoenfeld will accept reservations up to one month in advance. The family-style duck dinner includes homemade pickles, chips, pancakes, sauces, and “duck-consommé shots,” and the number of small plates and sides varies depending on the size of the group. There are plenty of snacks and cocktails available, too: oxtail dumplings, aged Manhattans, and Katz’s pastrami triangles. Take a look at the food and the menus, straight ahead.
