The posh new Medical Center-area getaway that opened last month, has announced an exciting new lineup of restaurants opening on-site in early 2022. The first, Duck House by Boon, is a sibling to Empress by Boon, the stunning modern Cantonese restaurant that opened in San Francisco earlier this year. Empress was the first solo venture for chef Ho Chee Boon, who spent three decades as the executive chef at Michelin-starred restaurant group Hakkasan.
As the name implies, Duck House will focus on Cantonese duck dishes using birds sourced from Joe Jurgielewicz & Son LTD, a fourth-generation family-owned duck farm in Pennsylvania. According to a press release, “JJS Pekin ducks” are known for their “distinct natural favor and unmatched crispy skin with an ideal meat-to-fat ratio.” Duck House will also serve dishes like stir fry, dim sum, and soups.
