Dante NYC: A Spritz-filled spring menu

It’s heating up in New York, which is all the more reason to dive into a Spritz or two at Dante. Even better with the upcoming Spritz o’clock Bell & Ross Bellytanker Chronograph on your wrist.

Reaching the No. 1 spot on The World's Best 50 Bars lists is no easy feat. Dante NYC received this accolade in 2019, and considering its current owners Linden Pride and Nathalie Hudson only took over the famous haunt on MacDougal Street in 2015, it makes it all the more impressive. Back then Linden said: “There’s not going to be any slow nights anymore.” He was quite right, and even when they’ve been open during Covid-19, business has been booming. They’ve attracted a global audience, which has only been accelerated by the aforementioned award, but the true measure of an establishment is usually based on local custom. It is known that the majority of their clientele do live within a five-block radius, making it the beating heart of the community. Not just frequented for its relaxed ambience, their cocktail menu has played a pivotal role in reinvigorating the idea of the aperitif. Their award-winning ways of presenting the Negroni are well-documented, but their cocktail repertoire stretches much further with consistent updates and inventions. Their spring 2021 menu is a fine example of their continued cocktail making ingenuity with six new and enticing recipes.
