Crop report early march

We are starting to see more beets and turnips coming in. The cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are now moving on out for another year, it’s a mixed Bon voyage we wish them on their trip to next years harvest.
Baby sweet potatoes have come in and they are sweet and buttery right now , best time of year to take advantage of this limited crop.
Our fingers are crossed that tony over at perique farms will start harvesting soon after an unusual winter to say the least , but we are expecting artichokes off the bushes any time now. If you have never had 1-2 day old artichokes then you are in for a treat. Sweet and crunchy and not a hint of bitterness. Raw , sliced thin and tossed with olive oil, lemon juice and shaved pecorino cheese and you will understand that the bother if dealing with this sticky thistle is very much worth it.
Well we will keep you updated as we know more.
Thanks for hanging in with us.

Sarsaparilla!!!

In case you didn’t know, there’s a new sheriff in town. Or at least a new watering hole. Plus they have food. Late night to boot! Sarsaparilla is popping up from 7pm til 3am on Tuesday nights right here at Dante’s. Funky decor, small plates, creative cocktails and maybe some games. Check them out on Facebook. There are pretty pictures. And then check them out for real at Dante’s. On Tuesdays. Cheers.

The big chill

So the polar vortex even found its way down to the bayou and is messing up our winter harvest season. Strawberries have taken a beating and are quite scarce right now. Crawfish, shrimp and crab are all at record prices, and all time low supply. As we have done for the past 13 years we will continue to search for and serve the best local seafood, supporting our community and staying true to our customers.
