Ducking and Dining in the West End

Food & Travel Magazine, August 2017

Dan Doherty has just launched an informal offshoot of his 24 hour restaurant Duck & Waffle in the new St James’s Market development in London’s Piccadilly. The 120 cover site focuses on duck dishes served every which way, using the sweet and savoury flavours that made Doherty’s name when he launched the original site in 2012. The new space is more industrial, with staff so cheerful and enthusiastic you’ll want to order everything on the menu.

Not-to-be-missed new dishes include the duck burger with crispy duck leg, and a duck jam doughnut that’s as lip-smackingly delicious as it sounds.

Fans of the original duck and waffle itself won’t be disappointed – they expect to shift 500 a day here – while other signature Duck & Waffle dishes such as BBQ spiced and seasoned pig’s ears, and the Full Elvis, a coronary-inducing mix of peanut butter and jelly buttered waffle with vanilla ice cream, peanut brittle, fresh berries and caramelised banana.
