New York City-Midtown Manhattan
May 11, 2018
Run by sisters Lorraine and Sabina Belkin – hence the name, Duo – this elegant Flatiron bar and restaurant is as chic as it gets in these parts. This is the kind of place where they even lay out little stools for you to rest your handbag on. The bar area is absolutely gorgeous, a gleaming circular central bar surrounded by slender stools the perfect place to perch with a pre-dinner martini. The dining room is no less easy on the eye with its over-sized artwork, LED menu displays and warm earth-toned decor. Both drinks (try their Signature Sippers) and food are well executed and attractively presented. This the kind of doubling we really like, a venue that works equally well both as a lounge and a restaurant.
