Odd Duck

Any person walking into Odd Duck for the first time will see the open kitchen and wood-fired oven and know they’re about to get both dinner and a show. Starting as a trailer by Barley Swine owner Bryce Gilmore, Odd Duck focuses on letting local ingredients speak for themselves through small plates, like the duck fat fried rice and sweet potato with green chile. Some dishes are so good, you’ll find yourself ordering another round of them before the night is over.
