Duck Burger with Shitake Mushrooms and Red Wine Demi-Glacé
This recipe is from Pioneer Square D&E, a neighborhood bistro offering creative yet comforting, from scratch fare. Founded by Seattle hospitality industry experts, husband and wife Jonathan Fleming and Libby Aker, D&E opened Fall 2018 and quickly became a popular neighborhood staple. With previously scaled down its offerings due to COVID restrictions, the restaurant is now fully re-open for dine-in, patio seating as well as takeout. The recent addition of Anthony Tran as Head Chef, paves the way for a new menu featuring the classic fried chicken selections known and loved by the regulars, as well as new seasonal items. The restaurant is located at 314 2nd Avenue South in Seattle. Find menus, directions, hours and more at pioneersquarede.com and @PioneerSquareDE on Instagram and Facebook.
Berger & Burger is the suggested pairing and the wine is from Kiona Vineyards, located in the Red Mountain AVA in the Columbia Basin of Eastern Washington. The wine varietal is the lesser-known Lemberger, a fresh and juicy medium-bodied red. This versatile wine pairs well with burgers, fish and poultry.
