The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

During the month of September, Lola will be celebrating duck—both its meat and its foie gras. The Great Neck restaurant’s owner, Michael Ginor, is also co-owner of Hudson Valley Foie Gras, which has pioneered the development of the “LOLA” duck, a cross between the wild Mallard (dark meat with a distinct gamy flavor) and the Pekin or “Long Island” duck (rich, light meat). I’ve sampled this duck and it is indeed delicious.

The menu, $70 a head, consists of:

Lola is at 113 Middle Neck Rd., Great Neck, 516-466-5666.
