Duozo in Back Bay is the high-end sushi experience for those who want their high-end sushi experiences to make them feel like they’re in an '80s movie where men in pinstripe suits talk into cell phones the size of shoeboxes. Expect a lot of stainless steel, leather, and a menu that goes far beyond sushi, but doesn’t always hit its mark. There’s a section of the menu dedicated to grilled things on sticks, (wagyu beef, miso eggplant, etc.) which make for great bar snacks, and the fish is high-quality stuff you won’t mind paying a little extra for.
