Nesting Duck Causes Menu Change at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown

April 19, 2006 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Fahrenheit Restaurant at the Georgetown Ritz-Carlton

Guests have gone gaga over a mother duck and her expected brood, nesting in a planter box outside the hotel, forcing the chef to remove the succulent duck breast from the menu at Fahrenheit restaurant. Until the eleven eggs have hatched and the duckies depart for the nearby Potomac River, the entree will remain off the menu. In the meantime, the mallard is under 24 hour surveillance by the hotel concierge, who has secured the area with velvet rope, and hotel security makes frequent nest-checks. According to the Washington Post, the duck's getting "bottled Ritz water to drink and cracked corn to eat -- both served in a silver Ritz bowl."

That's not all. As reported by UPI:

Bartenders at the hotel's bar created a special cocktail called the "Duck Duck Goose" with Grey Goose L'Orange vodka, pineapple juice, a splash of Grenadine and a splash of Sprite. And hotel guests now get a small Ritz-Carlton rubber ducky at evening turn down.

Awwwww.
