Named after a frequent flier in local skies, the Black Duck is just past the historic district in the small borough of West Cape May. White walls, wicker paddle ceiling fans, and black-and-white photos of old Cape May lend an island sensibility. An infusion of Asian and Latin flavors sparks the steaks and seafood on its contemporary American menu. Feel free to shield your eyes from the winged mascot painted on the restaurant's sign when you order the slow roasted honey-glazed
duck or the Southwestern duck confit, but don't feel the least bit guilty about it. A three course early-bird menu is a fantastic deal at just over twenty dollars. BYOB.
