The starter was a mix of vegetables (radishes, beets, carrots) on a "coffee soil" which sounded weird and tasted just as weird. I wanted to be adventurous but it really didn't work for me. If you want coffee on your carrots, go for it. The...More

Came for breakfast a couple of times - very good choice of options including gluten free albeit a little expensive. The 'Tavern' is actually a hotel restaurant so don't expect anything cosy. Very attentive staff.

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.
