We wanted to try the restaurant in town over the holidays with the family. We had heard great things about it. The decor is very nice and we loved the lay out. Our waitstaff was very nice.
Not what we expected. - The Shaved Duck Restaurant
Review: The Shaved Duck
Crispy leg of duck with brioche, Swiss chard, sweet cauliflower and tomato butter. Though Richmond has plenty of super eats, finding a triple treat of great food, well-made drinks and knowledgeable, unhurried service is the white whale of dining. Lucky Midlothian, The Shaved Duck spears this triumvirate. Paraphrasing Melville: As for me, this city dweller is now tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. Owner Joe Kmetz whose father and brother are also owners makes the restaurant neighborly. I give him props for bartending on an early Sunday visit, paying such attention to detail that he asked whether I wanted ice in my grapefruit juice, though he had his hands full at the busy bar.
The Shaved Duck, Saint Louis
Best food in the city! Great burnt ends! Pork, ribs and coleslaw were good. Beans were just meh.
Every morning, before the sun comes up, our pitmasters are busy firing up the smoker to serve you the freshest, tastiest meats. We smoke our ribs all day to ensure you get them straight off the pit. We believe in buying locally.
