Duchamp has all the elements of a great restaurant: a modern but cozy room, an incomparable patio in the warmer months and an established chef putting out French and American classics. The food lives up to its potential about half the time. For every great dish (tender braised pork shoulder; sweet, spicy and crispy chicken wings) there is a lackluster one (pasty gnocchi; underseasoned fish and chips). Thankfully, the overall experience tends to outweigh a couple of disappointing bites.
