Your Afternoon Snack: Duck Season

Day one, complete. Those in Prospect Park for opening weekend were blessed with sunshine and a load of fantastic food vendors. Smorgasburg has begun. After weaving between the throngs of first-day patrons, I paid a visit to Duck Season because I couldn’t resist the D.L.T. and the Poutine with Duck Fat Fries.
