Great Dinner at Dante's Kitchen

I just wanted to give a shout out to Dante's Kitchen. I was just in town last week and stumbled into DK after the host at Jacque Imo's suggested it (the wait at JI's was 2 1/2 hours on a Wednesday evening). We were sat immediately at DK and were brought complimentary spoon good! The apps were delicious: shrimp and grits, barbecue shrimp, homemade pickle plate, and a cauliflower and olive salad. The entree portions were quite generous and each were teeming with local ingredients. My scallops were cooked perfectly and paired with gorgeous shoots. I loved the beef tenderloin three ways as well. The uncontested star of the night was an heirloom carrot-ginger soup. The cocktails were inventive and the service was great. Go here!
