Don't Hold Your Breath, Foodies: Dante's opening delayed

Posted By on Tue, Aug 14, 2007 at 12:12 PM

Dante Boccuzzi
Those of you drooling over the notion of dining at Dante -- chef Dante Boccuzzi’s reimagined restaurant in what is soon to be the former Lockkeeper’s space -- are going to have keep wiping your chins for a while longer than expected. While plans originally called for Boccuzzi to launch the new hotspot right after Labor Day, the Laws of Man, especially in Cleveland, require construction to be delayed at least once during a project, while contractors make sure they haven’t forgotten to sufficiently rip everyone off. According to the newest schedule, Lockkeeper’s will serve its final meal on Sept. 20, then close for a quick makeover before reopening as Dante on Sept. 29; the official grand opening is set for Oct. 5. Barring any further delays, of course. -- Elaine T. Cicora
