Fodor's Review

Ask local chefs where they dine on their day off, and chances are a good number of them will mention Dante's Kitchen. Chef-owner Eman Loubier, a nine-year veteran of Commander's Palace, prepares seasonal menus for those with a sense of adventure. You'll find a Basque-style braised fish with tomato, calamari, and olive sauce, Vietnamese-style caramelized pork, and maple-glazed chicken-under-a-brick (note: it takes about 40 minutes to prepare). Sides are homey and filling, like caramelized-onion mashed potatoes or smothered cabbage. An outdoor patio is especially welcoming on cooler nights and at brunch on weekends. Reservations are not accepted for brunch.
