THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Duo Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review

: Opened during the great recession, there’s nothing that screams “austerity” at this restaurant, located just north of Madison Square Park. Crystal chandeliers hang from the high ceilings and illuminated menus guide diners through a feast. Truffles are everywhere at Duo, from the truffle martini (complete with a truffle-stuffed olive) to truffle mashed potatoes to truffle matchstick fries. The grilled shrimp and watermelon salad is a refreshing way to start off the meal. More hearty fare, including the generously portioned duck under a pile of carrots, peaches and lentils, is well-executed. The wine list spins the globe with some great selections by the bottle; creative signature cocktails are also available.
