Duck, Duck, Roots at Blue Duck Tavern in Washington, DC

March 19, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC, US – Though it’s ensconced in the sexy Park Hyatt Washington, designed by the ultra-urbane Tony Chi, and frequented by DC‘s political elite, Blue Duck Tavern manages to be an authentically “folksy” dining experience.
