The Shaved Duck - St. Louis Restaurant

Unfortunately this is a tiny restaurant because it needs to be five times the size to handle the crowds it gets.  I guess there is something to be said about the intimate dining experience.  Tucked away in an unexpected location in Tower Grove this place is serving up really great food.

I ordered a ton of food partially due to the wait.  I got the Duck Confit, Smothered Fries, Duck Confit Flatbread, Duck Confit Pot Pie and Jalapeno Creamed Corn.  All are very great.  One person ordered a sandwhich, SLAP and two other people ordered two meat plates with ribs.  I would recommend getting a two or three meat platter and some extra sides to pass around the table to make the dining experience more fun.  My tip on the appetizers don't get the duck confit unless your with your spouse/significant other because while awesome it isn't very shareable.  The damn thing made me a savage in front of our guests to dinner.  You're going to have to pick into the duck confit sadly I dove.

This place is simply enjoyable.  Expect to wait an hour plus if you get there after 5:30.  I am impatient so believe me when I say it is worth the wait.
