Chef Troy Knapp on His Current Obsessions

BY Kristen Schott | June 26, 2018 | Feature Features

The Blue Duck Tavern's Troy Knapp now calls his boat home, and he's savoring his time at the shore.

Troy Knapp believes in truly experiencing everything he does—whether he’s cooking for diners at Park Hyatt Washington DC’s luxe Blue Duck Tavern, where he serves as executive chef; or he’s enjoying the waterside scene from his boat, which he now calls home. Yes, the father of two and former pro jet skier recently put down proverbial roots on his 37-foot Sea Ray, dubbed 86’d (the term for when a kitchen is out of an item) and docked at The Wharf. “When I’m at home, I want to feel like I’m able to disconnect,” says the talent, who enjoys sunset wine cruises, among other splashy activities. “Boat life is about relaxation, spending time with my kids and friends in meaningful ways.” Here, he sets sail. 1201 24th St. NW, 202.419.6755
