Doris Wang and her famed Peking Duck returns!
Frenchie owner Sandrine Rossi is pleased to announce beloved Chinatown restaurateur Doris Wang will host a very special, one-night-only, Peking Duck Popup on Tuesday, February 1st celebrating the kickoff to Chinese New Year -- the Year of the Tiger. Doris's China King closed in December 2020 after 15 years and this will give fans a taste they have been craving.
Doris’s New Year’s dinner will feature her famous Scallion Pancakes, Shumai Dumplings, and a Three-Course Peking Duck feast —Crispy Duck Skin and Homemade Pancakes, Duck and Noodle Stir-Fry, and Duck Soup. Each duck dinner serves 2-3 people and will cost $88 per person (includes tax and gratuity). Guests can accompany their meal with wines from Frenchie’s extensive cellar, including bottles from Sandrine's family vineyard in Medoc Bordeaux. To celebrate Chinese New Year, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne will be offered for $90 dollars.
Like Julia Child (who Doris has actually cooked for), Sandrine Rossi’s favorite cuisine (after French) is Chinese. “I lived and worked in Beijing for 18 months in 2013-2014 as an engineer,” she says. “Doris’s incredible food reminds me of that special time.”
The China King Peking Duck Popup at Frenchie will be reservations only, beginning at 5 PM on Tuesday, February 1, with final seatings at 10 PM. Guests will be required to make a reservation via Eventbrite and post a credit card charge due to the preparation and time that will go into the dinner. Per order of the City of Boston, proof of vaccination is required for admittance to the event.
