Dante works for every occasion. It works for dinner with friends, a first date, brunch with a group, or pre-dinner drinks. Usually it gets crowded around dinner time (especially at the bar), but it’s my favorite for a semi-last minute brunch (i.e., it’s Tuesday and you need a six person brunch reservation at noon on Saturday). Food is nothing out of this world but definitely pleases everyone and the cocktail list is phenomenal (they also have a negroni session from 3-6pm).
