Our newest location! Reservations are not required. Contact us for large parties or special events. Feel free to contact us regarding our seating policy. Yes, we do serve brunch/lunch on Sunday with a great prix fixe including "The Best French Toast in DC", Steak and Eggs, Eggs Benedict and bottomless bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers. During the evenings, Medium Rare offers a unique, prix fixe dinning experience of artisan bread; a mixed green salad; prime, dry-aged steak; and hand-cut fries in a relaxed, fun, neighborhood environment. As we do only one thing, we do our best to make the food and experience exceptional and also a good value. There are only a carefully selected wines, spirits, and draft beer choices.

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. <br /><br />The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.<br /><br />*Please note that for diners bringing in wine, a $35 corkage fee (per 750 ml bottle of wine), with a limit of two bottles, will be charged.

"Everything is delicious, servers are very kind and patient. Lives up to it's reputation 110%. Smoked trout is unreal. I am still dreaming about the lemon curd dessert. They even brought us a glass of dessert wine to celebrate our anniversary. Top notch."

"It is very loud in there and service is slow. The brunch gets SO packed that it can be quite an event. Food sometimes runs out on the buffet but staff are VERY kind and try to help and bring out what you are waiting for. Overall it is delicious but not at all relaxing."
