DUO Restaurant & Lounge
DUO Restaurant & Lounge is the brainchild of two adventurous and entrepreneurial sisters, who know a thing or two about working in the restaurant industry. Stemming from a family of restaurateurs, sisters Lorraine and Sabina Belkin embark on their first ever self-owned and operated restaurant. Everything from the hand placed Swarovski crystals on the walls to the never before seen in New York illuminated menus featuring their contemporary American cuisine, is a result of the endless creativity that the inseparable Belkin sisters possess. Located in a neighborhood that has recently seen an influx of notable restaurants and deemed by many as "NoMad," DUO is slated for an early June opening and will feature a variety of show stopping contemporary American dishes.
Easily our favorite restaurant in New York City and that s saying something since we ve eaten out at many amazing places. My fiancé and I like to split everything we order so we that we get a taste of all the different dishes. The best we ve had there are the duck salad app, the beef carpaccio, the grilled salmon, and the braised short rib. There s just so many delicious items on the menu it was so hard to choose, but we were ecstatic with what we got. Also great are the signature duo sipper cocktails. You definitely have to make multiple visits to try all the great food there. We re usually too stuffed for dessert but when we do have it, it s rich and tasty. My only concern with writing this review is that the restaurant will get even more booked than usual :)
The food here is so amazing!! Every appetizer we had was delicious. Their poached lobster is definitely a must try. The crowd is fun and staff is great. A perfect friday night spot for dinner and drinks! aaaandd the apple cobbler dessert was just perfect! Definitely reasonably priced also
Duo is the best of the best! we found the atmosphere sensational. The service is outstanding. The food is especially delicious the tuna tartar appetizer is my favorite:-) We all had a sipper cocktail which was refreshing and very enjoyable. We had fun drinking from the glass it came in. Everyone from my group left the restaurant feeling satisfied and excited to plan another trip back. When you want a fine dining experience that is stylish, modern, and fun...duo is the place!
In june I hosted my sister s wedding shower at Duo. Things could not have been more perfect. The staff and the event manager was a dream. The entire staff could not have been more accommodating. From the incredible food, to the service, to the beauty of the space we have received NOTHING but compliments We will be spending many other happy events to come at Duo!
The truffle pizza is to die for . From the hostess to the waiters the service is 5 stars. This review is from a real NY er who is a definite foodie. This might be the best restaurant in nyc. The night we went they were playing great music. Great food, wondeful crowd, the best of what nyc can offer!
We frequent this fine establishment for lunch, dinner and the occasional cocktail and always have a great experience. A fantastic array of mouthwatering appetizers, entrees and desserts. They offer the best service around. Whether a party of 2 for or 20, duo knows how to treat there customers well and ensure a great time.
Went to Duo andvhad a great experience and meal. The food was shockingly great. For appetizers we ordered tuna, beef carpaccio (so tasty) and barratta-- all were awesome. For main courses, we ordered the duck and the sea scallops-- both were delicious. The dessert was the only thing that could have been improved-- it was very good but could have been a little bit better. Overall, Duo was awesome and I HIGHLY recommend going.
I rarely go to the trouble of writing a restaurant review and so many restaurants really don t merit one! Duo goes above and beyond serving delicious flavor and providing excellent service! Dishes I recommend are the shrimp and pear app, the Duck Entree which was tender and juicy, the Calamari app, the Lobster Duo and the apple cobbler. It was a meal to remember!!
I ate here with my boyfriend last night after an excellent recommendation by a co-worker. I must say, the food was very good and the service was spot on. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We ordered the scallops, Bronzino, and truffle pizza. The scallop was AMAZING!! the Bronzino my boyfriend had was delicious, and the flavor was very good. We ordered the duo cheesecake and chocolate mousse - both delicious!! All in all it was a great dinner with great service in a very nice setting. We will definitely be back.
You gotta love Duo restaurant! Outstanding food, friendly service, and glam setting add up to a very memorable dining experience. I started with the Duo of tuna, which was so light and fresh. Yum! I then had the grilled salmon which was mouth watering and cooked to perfection! Finished with the apple cobbler. Just loved every bite and looking forward to dining here.
