From the heart of our hearth, we bring you a neighborhood restaurant serving up eclectic American cuisine.

Every element of Black Duck centers around the hearth, from the flavor of the food to the warmth and congeniality of the gathering space. Chef and owner Jason Sawicki, known for his cult-favorite culinary hits at Fare Game, has designed his first brick-and-mortar restaurant to be a neighborhood sanctuary and culinary destination.

Cooking with fire has always been alluring for Chef Sawicki, who has dedicated an entire section of the menu to smoked fare from the hearth. His experience with seasonal-comforting fare served in an approachable neighborhood setting have guided the menu at Black Duck.
