We had the whole duck which was superb. It is marinated for over 2 days. Delicious. The bone marrow was amazing. Fried Green Tomatoes and Grits too die for

Husband and I were blown away by our meal here. The food, service and location were all top notch. The duck was absolutely to die for, as was the bone marrow and the butterscotch pudding dessert. Loved this restaurant!!!!

My husband and I had a great night! Our waitress, Adrienne, was wonderful! We had bone marrow for our appetizer and duck for dinner. Everything we had was stupendous! I recommend Blue Duck Tavern to anyone visiting Washington DC or enjoying a nice evening out.

Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.
