Odd Duck

Chef Bryce Gilmore opened Odd Duck as a food trailer in 2009, with a nearly Portlandia-level focus on supporting local sustainable agriculture. The trailer closed to condo development in 2011, and Gilmore turned his full attention to Barley Swine, his first full-service restaurant. The return of Odd Duck, this time as a full restaurant, has been met with unbridled enthusiasm, and his small plates continue the accessible farm-fresh tradition he started five years ago.
