Went for breakfast and was slightly disappointed. Nothing major but with such competition it needs to better to justify the cost. I think it's trying to be better than it is and should be a little bit laid back.. Found it a little bit pretentious.

Get the bone marrow! I really loved the service but wish it was quickly. Also the beef was delicious. Was not a fan of the cold bread.

Fantastic food, great service, nice ambience. Not outrageous wine list though Sea Smoke Pinot for over $200 is pushing it. Get the fries. Get the fried chicken on a biscuit. Ask and they will bring you another biscuit.

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.
