Another of Ford Fry’s creations, King + Duke’s menu is all about the huge open hearth that Fry installed in the kitchen, and which cooks navigate with a series of grills that can be moved around on pulleys. Most dishes see the hearth at some point, be they vegetables, like a whole-roasted cauliflower, or ambitious meats like the juicy, charred New York strip for two. The modern-yet-warm interior isn’t dissimilar from Ford’s other spaces, featuring bold brass light fixtures above the bar, worn leather barstools, and moody, dark walls. In the warmer months, try to grab a seat on the huge open-air patio, which is shaded by yellow-and-blue striped canopies in the sunshine and lit by twinkle lights in the evening.
