Wonderful established restaurant in the riverbend area of New Orleans. Both the appetizer and small plate portions are very generous. Our table tried the shrimp with grits, cheese board, mussels, escargot with marrow bones and the special charcuterie. All were successful. Although it was noted the grits could have used more of the tasty redeye gravy.The mussels were unusual in that instead of the usual wine broth, this was a spicy curry broth: simply delicious. Of special note the apples and fruit cake on the cheese board. Yes, fruit cake! It was stellar. The offbeat pairing of escargot and marrow bones was also deemed excellent. Entrees were trio of steaks, chicken roasted under a brick, and redfish with crab and citrus salad. The steak was rated as just ordinary,good but nothing over the top. We hardly ever order chicken out but this preparation is not the average chicken. Tender,juicy and so flavorfull. The redfish was the best redfish dish I have ever had in New Orleans. The salad on top somehow lightened the dish and added to what was already a perfect fish. At this point we were so full we kept dessert light, a trio of fruity sorbets. Perfect finish to a truly delicious meal. Service matched the meal.

I just finished up brunch at Dante's and it was absolutely delicious. The place really makes fantastic food. The homemade bread with butter and jam appetizer is wonderful. I had their breakfast burrito which was good, but my lady friend had their pimento cheese 'special' .. Basically served like Eggs Benedict. I can't even put into words how yummy it was. One of the finer brunch dishes I've had ever. Two big thumbs up. My only complaint would be for three dollars I should get a big boy sized glass of their wonderful orange juice. I will be back.

We were staying in the French Quarter so took a taxi there and back but it was worthwhile. The service was impeccable, the bartender had some interesting cocktails and the food was delicious. I recommend starting by sharing the charcuterie which is much more interesting and innovative than I've had elsewhere, you definitely need to book ahead.

Dante's Kitchen never fails to please. It serves my favorite brunch in NOLA. The salmon with poached eggs was simply spectacular. I will return!
