We headed back to Dante the other week for my latest Metromix write-up. Thankfully, we found ourselves at the Valley View restaurant on a Thursday night, which happens to be the night Dante becomes master of all things sushi for his weekly Sushi Blues event.
This event isn’t new; I’ve just really taken my time in getting there. What a mistake on my part. The sushi was amazing and the music incredibly enjoyable (more so for Jamie – he’s a huge blues fan).
If you haven’t heard, Dante Boccuzzi used to be the head chef at Nobu in Milan. I’ve been to the Nobu in NYC numerous times as well as the original Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills and easily think it’s the best sushi hands-down. Therefore, I had high expectations for our visit and was indeed pleasantly surprised – although there are still several rolls I can’t eat quite yet… The only thing that would make this night better would be for Dante to add Nobu’s signature black miso cod. If you’ve had it, you know what I mean.
