THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Due Restaurant Review: Yes, the well-heeled, west-side set does go casual now and again, and when the mood strikes, they head for Due, little sister to the very chic Linwood's next door. A splashy open kitchen abuzz with white-toqued chefs pumps up the volume on an otherwise muted dining room clad in soothing beige and white. Lighting is flattering: It is the patrons, after all, who star in this play. But the kitchen excels in its supporting role as a northern Italian roue by turning out seductive plates for a discerning clientele. Pizza and pasta gain pizzazz through toppings such as scampi with crisped garlic for the former and, for the later, lump crab with basil, corn, ricotta salata and tomatoes. Entrées, though, are full-fledged production numbers---nut-crusted salmon over Brussels sprouts and butternut squash, grilled beef tenderloin over lobster bruschetta---and most are worthy of applause.
