MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Simply put, Blue Duck Tavern will have you at hello. Set within the Park Hyatt, this upscale American tavern makes a dazzling first impression with its 25-foot entry doors, floor-to-ceiling windows, walnut wood seating, and highly coveted glass-enclosed booths. (And if that doesn’t have you swooning, the dessert station, piled high with tempting treats, certainly will.) Whether seated in the plush dining room or expansive lounge—which features a totally separate cheese and charcuterie-focused menu—the gorgeous space and its well-to-do crowd are the epitome of casual sophistication. At the center of the massive open kitchen sits a wood-burning oven, a behemoth centerpiece that turns out everything from fragrant, crusty bread to oven-fired Kansas Prime steak with Worcestershire gastrique. The menu spotlights such East Coast delicacies as cider-braised lamb shank from Shenandoah, VA; roasted duck breast from Hudson Valley, NY; and brown-butter roasted grouper from Florida. In a unique twist, many of the dishes-from perfectly cooked Maine scallops with a mild horseradish jus to pan-roasted rock fish with spot-on dirty rice-are served not on plates, but in top-quality cookware.
