Admit it, you have flipped someone off. But what you didn't know is that you have been doing it wrong all along.
If there is a bird that needs flipping— in your mouth that is— it is Logan Circle's The Bird. Located on the corner of 11th and O St. NW, this colorful restaurant's avian dedicated menu will have your taste buds taking flight.
The spicy tomato curry duck meatballs with yogurt and cashews had me replacing the 'd' in duck with another letter in the alphabet. Yeah, it was that ducking good!
I thought, "Could they match the tasty goodness of the duck meatballs with the grilled tamarind duck breast?" And match they did. Marinated in tamarind, a tropical fruit with origins in Africa and primarily grown in the tropics, the duck breast is paired well with chili, garlic and crispy baby kale. It also comes with basmati rice, which happens to be my favorite.
I tried their grilled peri-peri cornish hen but will refrain from comparing it to another Portuguese-inspired African restaurant with a similar recipe. Why? Because the meatballs and the duck breast greatly exceeded my expectations.
P.S. The Bird? Go flip it and flip it right!
