Late Night Happy Hour at Dante Boccuzzi Akron

Dante Boccuzzi's newest restaurant has settled in nicely in Akron's Northside. Filling the void left when Vegeteranian closed down, Dante Boccuzzi Akron (DBA) maintains a sophisticated atmosphere while keeping their menu fun and unique. The restaurant defines their fairer as "Modern American Cuisine in a Modern Setting."

My favorite part about modern American cuisine is the wonderful institution known as Happy Hour. In addition to DBA's standard Happy Hour from 4:30-6:30 during the week where you can grab $2 beers and a variety of upscale appetizers like sushi and toban yaki for under $5, they also offer a "Late Night Noodle Menu" from 9:30-11 during the week and 10:30-1:00 am on the weekends. You pick your noodle, broth and meat which they cook up with traditional Japanese veggies, tofu and a poached egg. 

Both outdoor and indoor bar have great seating for summer happy hour

Chef Dante also owns and operates Dante in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood, which splits its space with Ginko, a modern Japanese sushi bar, as well as The DC Noodle Company in Strongsville, a collaboration with Carmela del Busso, which serves casual Italian. The Akron Empire is happy to welcome DBA and hope it stays a long time.
