Editorial Review of Duchamp

Thanks to its slick Dada minimalist-inspired interior and low lighting, Duchamp's tasteful aesthetic is bound to stir up conversation, if not recollections of the hottest Euro cafes. Classy and chic, this reasonably priced upscale bar and restaurant serves from a French and Italian influenced menu (truffle soup, smoked salmon tartare, white pizza, potato-ricotta gnocchi) organized by the size of the meal ($6-$19).

Top off your dinner with an $8 dessert, like the vanilla crème brulee with lavender honey madeline biscuits, so French even a small bite could take you back to Paris.

For a change of pace, drop by any Sunday for a weekly barbecue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

As for Duchamp (the artist Marcel, that is), don't expect kitschy replicas of his work to cover the walls. However, the surrealist's style is evident throughout (though we do wonder what he'd think of the beautiful private patio out back).

Average cost: $21-$30
