This big news is brought to you by corona-creativity!
Blue Duck Tavern has — for the first time in its 14-year history — finally introduced a tasting menu. The four-course, prix fixe tasting menu is available exclusively during dinner service, which is sure to make our rare evenings-out that much more enjoyable and exquisite.
“The menu was designed as an alternative to the sharable menu that made us well known,” said Jean-Claude Plihon, director of culinary and food & beverage operations at Blue Duck Tavern. “With COVID-19 restrictions, our goal was to implement a safer dining experience for our guests while still allowing them the opportunity to enjoy a variety of dishes from our seasonal bounty.”
And wow! While the new tasting menu will change frequently according to the seasons, the current menu begins with an amuse-bouche of Crudo with shallot, radish, citrus, and wild rice complimented by Roasted Scallops with fava beans, corn, and chanterelles. Next up, guests will savor the Pan-Seared Halibut with carrots and green tomatoes followed by the Roasted Smoked Duck Breast with fennel, peaches, daikon, and watercress. To complete the meal on a sweet note, diners will enjoy a Stout Espresso Pot de Crème with smoked sea salt caramel, malted milk ice cream, aerated dark chocolate, and barley malt meringue.
Blue Duck’s tasting menu is priced at $110 per person, or $175 with a wine pairing, excluding tax and gratuity (everyone at the table must participate).
