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.

*Please note that due to DC COVID-19 Guidelines, patrons are not permitted to bring their own wine or alcohol into an establishment.

    Booked a birthday brunch here and had a simply great experience! Staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was excellent- fresh, well thought out flavours and just tasty! We had the brunch burger (which like its lunch/dinner-time sibling was excellent) and the steak and eggs special of the day- all great! The brunch cocktails were also really fun! Brunch was SO good, we had to take some home and so we ordered the apple pie to-go and that on its own is another food review! I highly recommend this lovely spot!

    I’ve been coming here for years. With the current situation it’s so very sad to see how BDT is operating so limited. Paper placemats. Items missing from menu. Ambiance. Etc. It really isn’t the same. I think with changes, limitations and standard changes.... pricing should reflect as sell. Being honest as I can since I’ve been a customer of your for many years.

    We had our own glass enclosure and the wait staff wore masks so felt safe. The service and food were amazing. Lovely peaceful date night out!

    All dishes were excellent, especially the fish. Wine list and choice also excellent. A little disappointed by the choice of desserts.

    The outdoor patio is in a nice sunny spot with heaters and plenty of room to social distance. Service impeccable, food, wine and drinks were delicious. One of the best in DC.

    While staying at the Park Hyatt we had breakfast for 3 days and one dinner at the Blue Duck. Every meal was delicious, well-presented and service was excellent. Breakfast for 2 at $120 was well over the top in cost. So I wouldn’t say 5-star on value. Ambience was wonderful and covid safe with the outdoor seating. Indoors lacked warmth and definitely felt like a hotel restaurant. But I believe that was a factor of being cautious due to COVID. I’m pleased they kept tables distant and covid safe. All in all a great place to have a wonderful meal this winter.
