ginko. go.

When chef Dante Boccuzzi first returned to Cleveland, I remember going to his initial Sushi Blues event at his original Dante location.

playing the part of judge, take 2

I am one lucky girl. Now once, but twice in the past two weeks I was asked to judge a culinary competition. And each time I looked at my fellow judges and thought, and they want me, too? Really? On Sunday, I had the privilege of sitting next to Joe Crea, whom I have so […]

Personally, I can’t wait to make either dish – especially the lamb! Confit of lamb & spring garlic w/ preserved lemons & watercress Ingredients: 6 oz. lamb […]

to review or not to review …

So there’s been quite a bit of chatter about my Metromix review of Dante that appeared several days ago – good and bad. I’ve received a ton of e-mail on the subject, and various people in various mediums have weighed in. And in all honesty, I can’t see what all the fuss is about. And […]


After waiting much longer than anticipated for a variety of reasons, chef Dante Boccuzzi has finally reopened his restaurant, Dante, in Tremont. And while the move no doubt took its toll on those involved, it was a smart move and one that’s sure to pay off for years to come. We went last Saturday for […]
