Good morning Cleveland friends. Hope you had a great weekend. Myself I was in Washington DC celebrating my little sisters summer pre-wedding celebration and the very pretty cherry blossoms in bloom. DC must be much warmer than us because all of their trees were dressed in their best, fresh shade of green, all the flowers were up and out and everyone had switched over their closets from winter to shades of spring and summer. Delightful!
While DC had some great restaurants, the 216 has a bunch of new ones opening up weekly this spring. The other day I went to check out the new Dante Next Door in Tremont, brunching with some friends in new places around town is so fun.
The new space is bright and open, including a great bar for the perfect breakfast cocktail and/or all-day drink fest. While I enjoyed my decaf skim latte the others in our party sipped negroni-like cocktails and spicy cucumber bloody mary’s made with with gin. Super pretty cocktails for spring brunching.
The space features a series of abstract paintings and carnival-like colorful glass chandeliers which make any dining experience at “Next Door” very scrumptious.
We all had unique breakfast foods including a scrambled egg pizza (quiche-like) a fettuccine alfredo frittata, the standard eggs & sausage with amazing toast and chocolate croissants! I would highly recommend checking this place out the next time you are looking for a good spring brunch hot spot!
