Tuesday was a perfect spring evening to check out the terrace at the Blue Duck Tavern. This is an ideal time to head over to the West End. If you’re lucky, you’ll see the ducks that have taken up residence in the pond out front. It’s as if they were paid to hangout out for the entertainment of visitors to the terrace.
Since I was going to the Blue Duck, I opted to wear a blue suit. My tonal striped tailored suit by Armani (similar) gives the impression of seersucker but with a modern take. A crisp slim fit Armani dress shirt served as the backdrop for my killer bow tie (similar) by Ralph Lauren. I loved how the pastel colors popped against the white and dark blue. Monk strap shoes are by Jimmy Choo.
I went to Blue Duck for a sampling of the menu which was absolutely phenomenal. Executive Chef Ryan LaRoche and Chef du Cuisine Brad Deboy really know what they are doing creating scrumptious delicacies such as blue-crab hushpuppies, white asparagus soup, and spring pea salad to a slow-roasted porchetta which was aptly named the “Lamborghini of pork.” Not only that, the restaurant has cheese monger, Sophie Slesinger for a fantastic assortment of seasonal cheeses and Pasty chef Naomi Gallego’s desserts are not to be missed.
