Blue Duck Tavern, a Georgetown neighborhood restaurant, serves creative American cuisine crafted from the region’s freshest, seasonal ingredients. Their casually-chic West End tavern evokes the warmth and inviting setting of a residential kitchen and a communal gathering place.
The Tavern's kitchen is rooted in the concept of serving simple, rustic food with an artisan approach. Their menu reflects the seasons and the chef’s creative mood, giving locals and travelers classic American cuisine with a fresh flavor attitude. Enjoy exceptional wines from their floor-to-ceiling cellar, as you watch the creative show from their dramatic open kitchen and wood-burning Molteni oven.
Touches of dark oak, blue burlap and wood tables create a rustic, contemporary American atmosphere. Share a table in the rustic-modern dining space or gather on the outdoor garden terrace, a warm weather urban oasis. Under Executive Chef Adam Howard, this restaurant also features a private Chef’s Table for private dinner parties, and progressive food and wine events. Weather permitting, Blue Duck Tavern boasts a 45-seat sunken outdoor garden terrace, bordered by the chefs' herb garden.
