The Former Duck Club's cozy bar and comfortable main diningroom with linen table cloths and carpeted floors are gone. The new" Bistro" lacks any specialness and looks like one hundred other minimalist places with wood floors (noisy) a few pieces of art, bare table tops (no more linen) and an uninspiring menu. The bar is noisy and the overstuffed wing chairs and tables have been replaced with bar stool height tables. Carpeting in the bar is gone too which makes the bar noisy.
The Bistro appetizer size salad for $5 was pretty good. The pork loin was slightly dry and not especially flavorful. It was served with a generous amount of fresh green beans and tasty potatos. Have to ask twice for a more generous helping of the ginger applesauce, which the waiter forgot to bring with the order, a second 2 oz helping was delivered in a tiny olive dish.
The trio of sorbets was a generous portion, easily splitable for two people, and very flavorable.
The overall experience was lackluster and I think I will choose other restaurants in Lafayette before going back to the Lafayette Park Hotel.
