About Us

Hand-cut Maine potatoes fried Belgian-style in duck fat, tossed with our seasoning salt and served in a cone with your choice of eight homemade dipping sauces -- these fries are our inspiration and reason we opened Duckfat.

Opened in 2005 by Nancy Pugh and Rob Evans, chef-owner of Hugo's, a AAA 4 diamond restaurant, Duckfat is proud to be independently and locally owned. Chef Rob was named "Best Chef Northeast" by the James Beard Foundation in 2009 and recognized by Food & Wine as one of the "Best New Chefs 2004". Despite all of his recognition, Rob strives to keep his focus on great homemade food made from the best quality ingredients, a vision he shares with his dedicated team.

Duckfat has become a Portland staple for hanging out and grabbing great food and drink. We plan on keeping it that way. Thank you for visiting our web site and your support. We look forward to seeing you soon!
