One of the highlights of our Washington, DC trip was visiting the Blue Duck Tavern restaurant, located off 24th and M Streets, Northwest, in the Park Hyatt. Hubby had eaten here before with some friends and took me on this trip. The restaurant was a feast for the eyes, featuring an open kitchen. It was like a symphony watching the cooks and the chefs, very transparent. We went with our friends, Kym and Randy. The menu was amazing – we ordered a few dishes and ate them, family-style. All of the items on the menu stated where the product was sourced – say, pheasant from Texas, for example. That way, you know where your food comes from.
Here are some of the things that we ordered (and shared). For starters, we had the roasted bone marrow. Ohmygoodness. So good. You spread the bone marrow onto some croutons. That made me a happy camper. If I only ate that, I would be happy!
We shared the roasted duck breast.
We also had the braised short rib – ah, yum! Sorry, no picture for that – it turned out ugly!
For veggies, we had the roasted Brussels sprouts. I never had Brussels sprouts when I was younger, just as an adult, so I never disliked them. They’re so good to me, like mini cabbages!

Here’s us, after a satisfying meal at Blue Duck Tavern. Michelle Obama dines here, so we thought, it must be really good! And it was!
