Our first dinner at Paper Canoe in Duck last week was a very pleasant surprise! We've been visiting Duck every year for the past 10 years and had been regular customers of a restaurant that used to be in this cozy soundside building but which closed a few years ago. Located at the north end of Duck, Paper Canoe is now located in this lovely spot on the sound where you can watch the sunset over the water and eat the most delicious food from a menu that is both simple and elegant. We started with the Crab and Artichoke dip which was heavenly. Little bits of lemon in the dip added just the right touch without being overpowering. My only complaint was that there were not enough crackers, though more were promptly provided upon request. The Margherita and White wood fired pizzas were excellent, thin and crispy, though may be a bit small to call a meal for heartier eaters. The crab cakes were some of the best we've ever tasted, and this comes from my 23 year old son who is a connoisseur of crab cakes (we come from Maryland where crab is king!). My 14 ounce boneless Rib Eye with Grilled Asparagus, Beer Caramelized Onions, Bacon and Herb Potatoes was out of this world. Service was excellent and this was all topped off with a beautiful sunset! Reservations are necessary as the restaurant is relatively small. Prices are a bit high, but we found that it was absolutely worth every penny spent. This family will be going to the Paper Canoe every time we visit Duck in the future.
