I will present joint work with several coauthors on the description of (higher) duals of (equivariantly embedded) toric varieties and the relation with the associated polytopes/lattice configurations. The interplay between algebraic geometry and combinatorics allows us to prove algebro-geometric statements with combinatorial tools and combinatorial statements with algebro-geometric tools.
