Best Duck (2007)

On any given Saturday night at the renowned Crabtree's Kittle House, at least 35 orders of the Kittle House's dish of magret (breast meat) of Long Island duck sporting a pomegranate glaze and accompanied by gingered sweet potatoes are served. 'It's one of our top three most popular dishes,' reports co-executive chef Kevin Bertrand. And no wonder. The meat is ultra tender, the pomegranate sauce wonderfully sweet, and the gingered sweet potatoes an added palate-pleasing bonus. (During the summer, it's served with a vegetable medley; fennel, soybeans, and rhubarb; poached in port, red wine, and sugar.) Bertrand calls this 'a classic French dish with some Asian influences.' We just call it delicious.

Best Garden Party for Good Causes (2012)

Amy Crabtree had dreamed of an outdoor garden where patrons of Crabtree’s Kittle House could wine and dine alfresco. After she died of cancer in 2009, friends of the Crabtree’s stepped in to make her dream a reality. But her husband, John, decided to use the garden not just for fine outdoor dining but to help those in need of help, too. Last summer, every Tuesday evening he hosted a ladies’ night out in the garden called Sparkle For a Cause, offering a menu of sparkling wines, martinis, and light fare—with a portion of the night’s proceeds going to a different charity each week. Thus far, the restaurant has raised more than $5,000. This year, the series kicked off June 5.
