In the wake of fusion cuisine, everybody has learned to talk the talk. Seasonal cooking. Local ingredients. But Maria Frumkin shows more dedication to the idea than most. She cooks food for the Miami climate, and her menus are based on flavors that make sense together.
What I appreciate most at Duo is how deeply civilized it is. The experience is about more than just food. It's people taking the time to go out to dinner with their intimates and friends, and that's where husband Charlie comes in. The restaurant staff members try to do everything within their power to make the evening expansive and fun. His touch comes into the wine list too, Mr. Frumkin isn't handing the responsibility over to someone else, but turning it into a personal learning experience. The list continues to evolve as he discovers interesting new wines and producers.

Many high-profile chefs get so wrapped up in their fancy presentations and clever ideas that wine becomes an afterthought, not so with Frumkin. She and her husband offer pristine, utterly natural food that encourages a good glass of wine to come alive.
