Back to D.B.A.

We recently headed back to Dante Bucuzzi’s D.B.A. in Akron and had the chance to try a few more items on the menu.


Hawaiian Tuna Tartare – purple potatoes, poached egg, chive remoulade


Hudson Valley Foie Gras – “bananas foster” pickled walnuts, crisp plantains


Surf and Turf – braised beef short rib, seared scallops, celery variations


Ricotta Cavatelli – sweet gorgonzola cream, toasted walnuts

We thought everything was good.  The foie gras was a little on the sweet side for our taste, and the scallops were just a tiny bit overcooked, but overall, it was a good experience.  We loved the cavatelli, and would definitely order it again.  There was a tanginess and a sweetness that made a perfect combination, along with the texture and nutty flavor from the toasted walnuts.  This place is a much needed addition to the Akron dining scene.  The vibe is lively, although a bit loud for intimate conversation.  We have been consistently happy with our dining experiences here, and we will certainly be back.
