Ducks Eatery's Will Horowitz blew us away at The Brisket King of New York, so we had to track him to his tiny East Village space to see what else he was cooking up. On any given night you might be treated to live music, or a crawfish boil, or the company of a 90-year old former ballerina, or some free whiskey. There may be smoked goat neck as a special. No matter which way you slice it, Horowitz has some interesting things going on. Read on to find out about the interesting things that brought him here.
