Blue Duck Tavern

Washington, DC, 20037, United States
TEL: (202) 419-6755

A West End favorite, Blue Duck Tavern serves home-style American fare with an emphasis on traditional methods of cooking like roasting, braising, preserving, and smoking. With handcrafted wood furniture (including a 29-foot long Windsor bench), a wood-burning oven, and design by Toni Chi, the restaurant's decor combines a classic style with modern touches. In the open kitchen, executive chef John Melfi produces dishes, such as roasted swordfish loin with charred eggplant puree, maple brined Berkshire pork chop, and wood burning oven roasted Main scallops.

Insider Tip:

Blue Duck Tavern serves brunch (think Belgian waffles with local peach preserves) on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
