“L’Aquila, il ‘Girone dei golosi’ torna nel centro storico”

“Un’altra attività torna nel centro storico dell’Aquila. Sabato 25 agosto, alle 19, in via dell’Arcivescovado 25, riaprirà al pubblico, in una veste inedita e accattivante, la caffetteria ristorante il “Girone dei golosi”. Il locale e i relativi arredi sono stati progettati e realizzati interamente da artisti abruzzesi.

[. . .]

Il Girone dei golosi si presenta come un caffè artistico, con la presenza di quattro quadri appositamente realizzati dall’artista Srek (Stefano Cencioni), ispirati al Girone dei Golosi, nel Sesto canto dell’Inferno di Dante dove i dannati, sommersi dalla fanghiglia, vengono graffiati da Cerbero, mostro a tre teste.”    — L’Aquila, Abruzzo News, August 23, 2018

World’s Best Bar 2019: New York’s “Dante” Wins Top Spot

“New York’s Dante reached cocktail paradise tonight when it was named World’s Best Bar at the 2019 Spirited Awards in New Orleans during this year’s Tales of the Cocktail. The bar, which opened in 2015 in what was once a famous Greenwich Village coffee house, Caffe Dante, was also named Best American Restaurant Bar for the second time in three years (which, under the rules of the Spirited Awards, means it is now retired from the the category). Among the American bars, Dante beat out local competitor Gramercy Tavern, Houston’s Better Luck Tomorrow, and Louisville’s Silver Dollar.

“The awards ceremony was introduced by Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston, who just launched a mezcal called Dos Hombres with his Breaking Bad costar Aaron Paul. ‘People suggested we call it Methcal,’ Cranston joked in his welcoming remarks. Earlier in the week, the two actors were slinging drinks at New Orleans’ iconic Napoleon House and Cranston, who admitted how much more respect he now has for bartenders, confessed that he endured two non-lethal injuries during his three-hour shift—cuts on his hands from the cocktail shakers.” […]    –Karla Alindahao, Forbes, July 20, 2019

“Dante’s” Passes the Taste Test

“Kelly Mita-Skeet dips a tasting stick into a pottle of sweet-tart kawakawa jelly; she tries a little bit, suggests it would be good with lamb. She has a kamokamo pickle and horopito and lemon sauce to taste as well.

“We dip and eat and decide that the punchy horopito and lemon would be perfect with fish, and the kamokamo pickle has a chow chow quality to it. Maybe a match for a cheese and corned beef sandwich?

“The condiments are from the Manaaki range made at Omaka Marae, near Blenheim, and Mita-Skeet will shortly be selling these at her Cambridge store, Dante’s Fine Foods, so she’s figuring out their finer points.” […]    –Denise Irvine, StuffNZ, April 12, 2018

Nine Circles of Hella-Peño

“Long, long ago, we promised ourselves that if Jack in the Box ever launched a new Munchie Meal featuring a Hella-Peño Burger, we’d make Ms. Morrow proud (she was, after all, Taft Union High School’s finest 11th-grade English teacher). Have we lost our minds? Probably, but the result is one of the greatest things in the history of things.

With no further delay, feast your eyes on (reverb voice) The 9 Circles of Hella-Peño!” –Robyn Reynolds for Struck on Behance, August 28, 2015.

Trattoria La Divina Comedia, Bogota, Colombia

Trattoria-La-Divina-Comedia-Dante-Portrait“Trajo de su Italia Natal, los secretos más ricos de la cocina italiana. Esos que aprendió de su madre y de su propia nonna, y ya sabemos como son las mujeres italianas además de apasionadas, unas cocineras increíbles, de eso no hay duda. A mi me encantaba ver a la nonna cocinar, disfrutaba con esa forma tan particular de amasar, la dedicación con la que preparaba las salsas y seleccionaba cada ingrediente.
Yo la acompañaba a hacer las compras y la observaba elegir las verduras más frescas y los condimentos más sabrosos. Sabia que cada detalle era el más importante. Para la nonna sentarse en la mesa era el mejor momento del día y eso se notaba en la forma en la que preparaba cada plato. Este es su cuaderno de recetas con sus mejores secretos y sus mejores sabores. Esos que enseño a su hijo Giuseppe y el a su vez me enseño a mi, hagamos de cuenta que la nonna nos llama a comer desde la cocina y sentémonos a su mesa a disfrutar sus platos, vale la pena.” — Sergio Martin, Trattoria La Divina Comedia

Portrait of Dante, Fishing Lab alle Murate, Florence

“Uno spensierato museo.

“FISHING LAB Alle Murate rappresenta il risultato di una ricerca di mesi grazie alla quale abbiamo raggiunto una location unica: il palazzo che dal 1200 a metà del 1500 ha ospitato ‘L’Arte dei Giudici e dei Notai’.

vero_volto_dante“La particolarità è data dal fatto che al giorno d’oggi questo luogo rappresenta un museo, recentemente salito alle cronache per l’uscita di un trattato riguardante il prezioso ciclo di affreschi con il più antico ritratto documentato di Dante Alighieri, sopratutto L’autentico, dato che il poeta non è raffigurato con naso aquilino e fronte accigliata, come risulta dall’iconografia tradizionale.” — Fishing Lab website

Dante: Restaurant-Bar and Ice Cube

18LOGO2-master768

[…] “Preserved in ice. Gaze down at the huge ice cube floating in your old-fashioned at Dante, the Italian-style aperitif bar in Greenwich Village, and you’ll have no doubt about where you’re drinking. Cut into the side of the frozen block is the bar’s poetic name.” […]   –Robert Simonson, New York Times, May 15, 2015

Dante’s Table, Castro, San Francisco

Dantes-Table-SF-Restaurant“[Owner Francesco] D’Ippolito is a fan of Italian poetry, especially Dante’s three-part Divine Comedy, which is why he named his first restaurant Poesia. For Dante’s Table, he hired muralist John Baden […] to do bold and colorful, Dante-inspired works for the walls of the restaurant. The main dining represents Dante’s seminal epic poem, Inferno, with the hallway leading to the rear being Purgatorio, and the back dining room and patio being Paradiso. (D’Ippolito will be making the rear area and the garden patio available for private events.) For now, as the patio gets renovated, they have a tarp up that reads ‘Paradise is Coming…’.” — Jay Barmann, “First Look at Dante’s Table, Now Open in the Castro,” Grubstreet (April 25, 2013)
