Venue Info

"Duende" means the spirit of passion in Spanish, and both the decor and cuisine at this stunning Uptown spot take that definition and run with it: the contemporary Spanish space sports chevron parquet floors, custom barstools and tables, and a soaring ceiling, setting a beautiful, intimate scene for an equally vibrant smattering of tapas, such as manteca colora (spicy pork rilettes) and bunuelos de queso (gruyere fritters). You can share these piquant dishes over a glass of wine or sherry from Duende's extensive selection. There are larger plates, too, like fideu caldosa: crispy rice-like noodles served in a pan with chicken, shrimp, and savory spices.
