Could the slow-starting NoMad at last be taking off? You'll recall Daniel Humm and Will Guidara of Eleven Madison Park are slated to open several restaurants there, and now, with Duo, the hood gets some chandelier and Swarovski-crystal action. Check out the space in our slideshow to see design elements like the oversize painted ladies, crystal chandelier, and gold-filigree wallpaper. You can also scope dishes from the seafood-focused new American menu by chef Hok Chin (Bruno Jamais), which features playful signature eats like the Duo Carpaccio, filet mignon, tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, and the Lobster Duo, Champagne-poached Maine lobster, cauliflower gratin, lobster-and-potato spring roll, garnished with green-apple curry. See the full lineup below.
