We planned to go to Beerzaar for lunch today, but it didn’t open until 1:30. Despite the stupid name and the fact they don’t open until 1:30 pm on a Saturday, Beerzaar is a decent place for tapas. Not to the level of Despaña, but a nice surprise, especially since it is in the neighborhood. But this review is about Dante.
I got out my trusty Google map with the multitude of green flags, stars, hearts, etc. and chose Dante. What a great choice! The brunch was one of the cleanest meals we have had in a while, and it was much more delicious than Souen (which is known for clean food). We split a poached egg with prosciutto and watercress perched on a piece of grilled toast and a brown rice bowl that was topped with sashimi cubes, seaweed salad, avocado, radishes, and a drizzle of olive oil. It was just the right amount of food with an amazing amount of flavor for its simplicity of ingredients. Add in a couple of solid glasses of wine, and we were very happy campers.
We could definitely see becoming regulars at this place.
