Blackstone Loses Dante
The second location of Dante in Blackstone ended service on May 4th to make room for owner Nick Strawhecker’s latest venture, Forno. Serving seasonal, shareable lunch, brunch, and dinner menus, the wood-fired Italian fare. This will maintain the appeal that made diners a fan of Strawhecker’s original concept while expanding on the menu that won your Best Of votes. The establishment will take a new approach to ordering, plating, and serving. You can get your first taste on Thursday, May 16.
Speaking of Blackstone
The neighborhood will be welcoming its first sports bar later this month when The Sports Hall opens at 3801 Farnam.
