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.
