Food: 7/10 Drinks: 8/10 Vibes: 7/10
Midwest Foodie: Had some family in town and wanted to do a true New Orleans Sunday brunch so we went to Dantes. The menu was interesting and we started with a bacon cinnamon roll that was the highlight of the brunch. Don’t knock it til you try it. I had an alligator sausage benedict that was so-so but we also had a bread pudding French toast that would have been better if they hadn’t put a fruity glaze on it. Overall, the food here is good. If you’re near the Carrollton area and looking for a weekend brunch at the last second, give Dante’s a look. Flat palms on this one, no thumbs up or down.
West Coast Boozer: Bottomless mimosas at brunch!! This is a juice bar so the mimosas are made with fresh squeezed juice…makes a big difference. If you order a “virgin” juice, beware that they are very small. Liked the drinks options at this place but didn’t LOVE ‘em. B
East Coast Vibes: Colonel mustard in the dining room with the alligator sausage! Dante’s Kitchen is in a converted old New Orleanian (Orleani-en? Orleani-on?) house with darkly painted walls and large antique portraits giving it an old timey feel. Uptown but nestled off Tchop making it feel a bit isolated from the hullabaloo, Dante’s is not the place for abbrevs and recaps of your night at F&Ms. Better to take your visiting fam to hone your fork and knife etiquette. 7/10
