Knowing that my Wednesday evening would have to be dedicated to studying, I took Lisa out to an early Valentine’s Day dinner at Duplex on Saturday. Overall, it was pretty good. We weren’t blown away, but enjoyed dinner all the same.
I had curried chicken, Lisa potato gnocchi. Both dishes were quite tasty, as was the appetizer of tamales and Lisa’s dish of squash soup. (Lisa really liked her chai as well, making me wonder if ghosts of Pandora’s were haunting the place.) The environment was both romantic and pleasantly funky, and the service was very good. It was relatively inexpensive, too: Our meal came in under $75, including tip. (Neither of us had any alcohol.)
Because of all that, I kind of hate to say I don’t see us rushing back. For the price, we could probably get a better dinner at Town Talk or, dare I say it, Figlio. (Yes, I’m a heathen.) But it was good, and I don’t think either of us would hesitate to recommend giving it a try.
