Over the last year, there is no doubt that the pandemic has impacted us all. It was a difficult year for small businesses, especially everyone who worked in the service and dining industry. Rather than throwing in the towel; we leaned on the grit and support of the Chicago people to adapt to our new normal and deliver a completely reimagined dining experience called The Duplex. What started as two “ghost” kitchens in downtown Chicago has transformed into a modern community dining space that collaborates with the city’s best up-and-coming chefs.
The Duplex partners with new chefs every 6 months. These rotating menu concepts will reflect the diverse flavors of our unique neighborhoods and give new culinary talents a chance to shine in our kitchen. The Duplex serves as an inclusive space to gather, indulge, dance, network and grow together. Through the vision of owner, Le’Qoinne Rice, we strive to bring you an innovative dining experience no matter where you come from.

    If you love loud, this is the place. We couldn’t really have a table convo, because the DJ was crazy loud. The food was ok, but nothing special.

    The service was great, the vibe was enjoyable, and the staff was professional. The down side was the service charge added to the bill which was explained that wasn’t the tip but this charge went toward the restaurant itself.

    The music was so loud we cannot call to let them know that we ran into traffic due to a bad accident and that we were going to be late, we were late about 10 minutes and we had to wait almost an hour to get seated only for them to tell us that they were running out of food. It won’t stop me from trying it again. Just hope that our next experience was better than the first one.

    The food was reasonably priced given the location, and it matched my expectations. However, I encountered a service problem. Although I ordered both my appetizer and main course together, the rice for the main dish wasn't available. Furthermore, while other patrons received their appetizers promptly, mine was never delivered, despite the waiter's recommendation for the crab dip. Although the waiter remained pleasant, the service hiccup detracted from an otherwise enjoyable meal.

    Ambience on point. Service is poor, staff were hanging out and even eating their own brunch at the table and not attending to tables. We had no clue who our server was the entire duration of our brunch so we had to flag down different people. The vibes and music were there though. Food was okay! Overall, I’d return for the vibes and drinks only.

    I would say I love the music. I got the shrimp and grits and it was very spicy which I didn’t expect. I would say it’s not worth the reservations because I ended up waiting another 45 minutes for a table. Tried to put us in the front and it’s cold and it was a small table. But overall I would come back and get something else!

    Never experienced a jazz restaurant before and I can assure you it’s a must to come to Andy’s. The employees are magnificent and the food is top notch. Me and my partner both enjoy our night. Don’t worry even though you see only bar seat only left, the design of the layout is perfectly structured to the point you just feel the whole music and energy revolving the room. I was afraid that I won’t be up close or hear, but it went perfectly well. If your coming to Chicago do yourself a favor and come here before you leave.

    Please do so much better. Really tired of waitstaff throwing the kitchen under the bus while not doing well at their own job. Also, to run out of multiple items on a prix fixe menu during Black Restaurant Week AND on Valentine's Day is insane. Food that did make it to the table was very mid and under-seasoned, except the broccolini. THAT was delicious. Y'all could've kept everything else. The first two times I visited were great so I was really annoyed by this experience. My money was supposedly refunded but I haven't received it days later, so I'll have to follow up on that...

    The ambiance and drinks were top tier I even enjoyed the music. The food was mediocre at best and a lot of the options were not available I paid $100 for wings, cheese sticks, steak tacos that was really roast beef and chips and salsa that was pizza sauce

    The food was absolutely horrible. it has no flavor. Me and my guest ordered the steak tacos, chicken wings and the crab dip. Nothing had flavor it was not seasoned well. There was a bunch of fruit flies at our table and food scraps on the floor. The service was just ok. Would not recommend this spot not even for the drinks.

    Wow! You made that so special ❤️ I feel like that was the lowest I have paid in the city for a full 4 course meal where I didn’t have to be overwhelmed by the menu and I was along for the ride for what ever was given to me. I also love how the creative culinary director hand delivered his creations to us. Food is such an art and I really feel like I got to wine dine and indulge in his art. And you can tell the noodles are homemade by the texture. It was just really nice to feel special and not break my wallet. 35$ pluss service fee tip is a very good deal for the quality. I’m also really happy to support such an amazing BIPOC lead business ❤️ Thank you for being a gift to the Logan square community.

    Went with a few friends for happy hour. Drinks were just ok. I ventured off menu and ordered a Tom Collin’s and got something back that tasted like watered down lemonade. Gin fizz spritz was very sweet, not for me. Food, Queso came with 3 corn tortillas rather than chips. Wings meh. Pork sliders dry and unremarkable. Pricing high.

    My server sucked & made a mistake and then acted like she was going to charge me for the mistake. The bacon was horrible. The drinks weren’t good. My lobster roll was DELICIOUS but other than that, I was very disappointed. I love this restaurant usually so maybe it was just a bad day. I hope so!

    I had to wait 17mins for someone to acknowledge me and give a glass of water. Whitney ended up being my server even though she wasn’t assigned to me. There were multiple workers who walked past me so it was really unfortunate to be waiting that long to be served.

    This is a neighborhood spot that we can walk to and enjoy the upscale cocktail selection and rotating food menu. However, my husband and I have never received worse service than this past visit. Our hostess sat us and all surrounding tables had been greeted/waited on expect for us. An entire 30 min went by and not a single staff member stopped at our table to ask us if we need anything. We told the hostess and another 10 minutes went by without anyone visiting our table. This is now 40 minutes of sitting without being greeted or an order taken, so we moved to the bar where we were greeted and waited in immediately. The bartenders were wonderful; however, then the food took an immensely long time to come out with being backed up in the kitchen. Half our order ended up being comped for the wait and the cocktails needed to fill the gaps of time before any food came out. I just hope that this restaurant can either staff appropriately or seat less people if under staffed as the comped drinks and food we received I’m sure made for more of a loss than seating less people for the amount of staff on hand to create an elevated and well serviced atmosphere.

    Came with a group for dinner. We were all served at different times with the majority of us receiving our food after an hour of waiting. Staff seemed avoidant to the situation and not keen to check on the table unless prompted. Once we finally got our food it was dry and seemed like it had been thrown together in the kitchen with whatever ingredients were still in stock before sitting under heaters for 60 minutes. The Bolognese resembled reheated leftovers straight out of the microwave. The atmosphere was nice despite the air of disgruntlement from fellow diners. The waitress was ready to address the issue once prompted and was very kind.

    Our server was new but clearly not well trained. Our main course can before the appetizer and the wine came before our cocktail was finished. One main course came out at least 7 minutes before the other 2. The dessert came before we were finished with our main courses. The salmon was overcooked.
