Bethesda’s Duck Duck Goose is expanding to Fells Point. The new restaurant will move into the space that previously housed Bad Decisions at Fleet and Washington streets.
The owner of the French bistro, Chef Ashish “Al” Alfred, developed a deep appreciation for cooking at a young age growing up in Montgomery County. He visited Baltimore often and found it charming as a child.
“I found Charm City very charming from a very young age, so [it was] kind of always a dream for me to have a place here,” he said in an interview.
Alfred was living in Bethesda until earlier this year, when he moved to Canton in preparation for the opening of the new restaurant.
Besides the Duck Duck Goose at 7929 Norfolk Avenue, Alfred owns the 4935 Bar & Kitchen, also in Bethesda. The first floor of the space is currently undergoing renovation to make room for George’s Chophouse, which is scheduled to open later this summer.
The new Duck Duck Goose menu will feature some of the dishes from the original restaurant, including Cabernet-brasied short ribs, quail and dry-aged duck. The menu will also cater to local patrons and change seasonally, Alfred said.
The second location at 1928 Fleet Street will feature a 42-seat dining area, open kitchen and large bar.
