Dan Tana's Really Sucks

Dylan Yolles | May 14, 200101:12 PM     14

Dan Tana's was on my list of places to try - for the ambience at least. The Zagat's makes it sound sort of intriguing. The room is cool (small with plenty of red banquettes) but the food is truly abysmal. Minestrone that tastes like it came from a can. Antipasto with ice berg lettuce and canned chick peas. A way - too - big and thick veal milanese fried in stale tasting oil. Some pretty boring spaghetti with tomato sauce. A practically undrinkable house wine by the carafe. I didn't stay for dessert. The atmosphere is cool, but it's hard for me to believe that this place continues to pack 'em in given the atrocious food. Any thoughts on similarly cool classic ambience but with better food? (I have nothing against a traditional southern Italian red sauce kind of place. It can be done well.)
