thought i'd start a proper thread for this place, since it doesn't seem to have one of its own, instead of continuing to piggyback on to existing cleveland queries. we had dinner here last week, and as i mentioned on an earlier thread, i was a bit apprehensive due to the fact that dante will be closing on dec 31 at midnight and reopening in april in tremont. i'm glad to report that my worries were totally unfounded. our meal was excellent (as good or better than the one we enjoyed there last month), and the service was once again wonderful. we had the same waiter, who not only remembered us from our one previous visit but remembered some of the wines we'd tried. i had skate for my main, and it was pretty close to perfect. the fish itself couldn't have been cooked better, and it was served with grapefruit and grilled fennel, which added the kind of tart flavor i like. i'm really looking forward to trying the new incarnation on a future visit.
