THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Duvet Restaurant Review

: Eating on a larger-than-king-size mattress in a 20,000-square-foot room filled with 29 other beds, while the lights slowly change from pink to orange to blue to red and back to pink, feels very counter-intuitive. But once you settle in at Duvet, perhaps quaff one of the signature cocktails like the White Satin mojito (with vanilla bean), it's not hard to feel right at home. Eating on a mattress while propped up against sturdy yet comfy pillows is easier than you'd think. Hard-plastic donut-shaped disks in the center of the bed keep drinks stable while plates are placed on plastic TV trays. With such supreme (but very cozy) gimmickry, the taste buds tend to take a nap when it comes to the food. The progressive American menu is seafood heavy. The roasted black cod, bluefin tuna, and ginger-scented chicken with wild mushroom spring rolls are ambitious, but can't compete with the sensory overload of the dining room. In the end, however, you'll be sorry when the check comes---not because you'll have to pay it, but because you'll have to get up.
