This was my first time to Duo and it was perfect. We were late for our reservation and called to let them know we were stuck in traffic. They were very nice and held our table for extra 30 minutes past the reservation time (pretty amazing for a restaurant on Saturday night). Once inside, we were seated right away and the waitress knew that we had a show to catch (which I told them when I made the reservation). She was attentive and answered any and all questions we had about the menu and the wines, and did not try to push the most expensive of either. The food was some of the most amazing I've ever tasted, I specially loved the braised short ribs, my husband the incredibly beautifully presented filet of sole fish. If you are in the mood to try something new, and experience new flavors (other then your standard meat and potato meal), then this is the place!. After dining in Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Naples, I can honestly say that this restaurant was my top experience all around. Well worth the money you will pay!
Great place for a nice night out!
It is easy to see why Duo is so widely and fervently loved.
A grab bag of eclectic, multicultural influences that is, at heart, American
In this city full of ornate restaurants, none of them manages to exude the class and quality the way this one does. Without any overweening glitz, the impeccable service, the modern room; and then there�s the chef, Mme Frumkin, who, unlike most super-chefs in town, tends to stay in her kitchen and cook. Go at dinner (when the room fills with suits at lunchtime, it looks like a corporate cafeteria). All the food is excellent�from ceviche to barely cooked salmon with miso�but if it�s on the menu, order Mrs. Frumkin�s shrimp poached in sweet French butter. Or consider a dinner appetizer of sweetbreads, decadent on their own, they are nonetheless paired with a sauce of aged balsamic and a puree of fennel! For an ultimate effect that of my friends called whimsical indulgence.
The wine list is one of the best in America�let the sommelier choose the wines.
I was introduced to Duo by a friend and became a huge advocate for it. It is mainly thought of as a wine bar, to which they do a wonderful job. They carry countless varieties - many that are pretty rare. It has a chic interior environment that works well for ordering flights of wine and talking with friends. But the real surprise is the menu. Most wine bars have a few edible options that are mostly used to bring out the flavor of the wines. Duo goes well beyond that! They carrry a full menu - which doubles the wine bar into a restaurant... although they don't advertise it. I came with a large party where everyone ordered different things... and EVERYTHING was fabulous! We were all raving! By far, I recommed the Duck entree. Truely mouthwatering, trust me.
Anyway, as you would imagine, the servers will help pair the perfect wine to compliment your meal. Also, the servers were really fun and friendly... not at all snotty (as some wine establishments can be).
