Duo, a new-comer to Madison Avenue is located between 27th and 28th Streets and lately buzzing for their gorgeous presentation on their brunches and dinners. I have gone twice. And the second time was to give a second chance. Unfortunately this staff is not Gluten-Free friendly at all! I have reacted twice, and will now spend the next few days itchy. Total bummer. I was really rooting for this spot.
Their motto, a quote from the infamous Virginia Wolfe "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well". I wish this were true. In this day of allergies, it is imperative that in order for a new comer to withstand any test of time, their staff must be 'in the know' when it comes to a gluten allergy or any other allergy for that matter.
This spot had so much potential. A very 'she-she' staff, gorgeous paintings of fairies and ladies on the wall, beautiful decor with leather and nail head studded chairs and fantastic presentation when it came to the food.
Too bad Gluten-free is not on their list of importance. I would NOT recommend this spot for anyone with an allergy.
However if you are not gluten-free, you will enjoy this spot.
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
