Peaceful Atmosphere at the Black Duck Restaurant

For a great date night restaurant in New York City, you should make a reservation at the Black Duck Restaurant inside the Park South Hotel.  This seafood restaurant delivers a delicious array of dishes (such as seared sea scallops, sesame crusted wasabi tuna, and spaghetti with clams) in an enjoyable atmosphere.  From the dark and cozy atmosphere to the live Jazz music, this restaurant would be the perfect place to have a romantic evening.  Tucked away on Park Avenue, you'll enjoy a little escape from the busy New York City streets, when you dine at the Black Duck.  This restaurant can get a bit noisy because of the live music, so it probably wouldn't be a good choice for a business meeting.

NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Black Duck Restaurant is located near Park South Hotel in between Gramercy Park and Murray Hill in Manhattan. This American Seafood restaurant adds Asian flavor and European flare to its dishes. The focus is on the food and the entertainment at this New York seafood restaurant, as The Black Duck NY avoids the many gimmicks found in many contemporary Manhattan restaurants.

Why We Dine: The Black Duck Restaurant offers a large menu with many different varieties of seafood. This is combined with their extensive wine list, offering a great list of wine pairings with the many different types of fish served here.

  • Charm: The decor in this restaurant makes the Black Duck look like it is portal in the 20s and 30s prohibition era. It's classy but not over the top, and does not distract from the focus being on the good food served.
  • Entertainment: The Black Dust hosts a wide variety of entertainment options, ranging from live Jazz on Friday and Saturday nights to screenings of James Bond movies with free popcorn on Sunday nights.

Inside Knowledge: The name for The Black Duck NY comes from the Black Duck rum-runner ship during the prohibition era in the United States. The Black Duck successfully transported illegal alcohol during prohibition to the many speakeasys in the New England area before it was finally shut down by the Coast Guard in 1929.

We Recommend:

  • Grilled Atlantic Salmon: This piece of salmon is lovingly prepared and served with roasted butternut squash puree and some grilled asparagus. The fish is flaky and comes apart with no real effort by you.
  • Sesame Crusted Wasabi Tuna: Light and extremely spicy tuna. This Asian-infused delight is served with Japanese rice and is a great break from the classic grilled seafood served here.
