Blue Duck Tavern is a great brunch pick if you're looking for something a little fancy. They have a lovely patio that you can dine outside and enjoy the surroundings. Executive Chef Sebastien Archambault and Chef de Cuisine John Melfi recently updated the menu with some new dishes. The a la carte brunch at Blue Duck Tavern is served Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Short Rib Hash with an olive oil poached egg and horseradish sauce is a must-try! In fact, it is now one of my favorite brunch dishes in the city.
The new Crab Frittata with potatoes, broccoli rabe, crème fraiche and chives was a little too mild for my tastes, but the Chesapeake Bloody Mary and the Pear and Elderflower Mimosa made up for it.
Also, make sure not to leave without tasting the delicious apple pie. This has to be one of the most comforting desserts around. I think this would be a fun spot to bring family for a nice brunch.
