Located in the heart of Brandon, Della's After Dark has become the place to be for the finest in food, wine and jazz. Since 1989, Beverly DellaGrotta has been catering to the breakfast and lunch needs of the people of Brandon. Her deli, like all self owned small businesses, was built from the roots up, and Della's Delectables has since become a household name for the people of Brandon. In October 2001, Anthony and Beverly's son Alex opened a new leaf to the tale of Della's, transforming the daytime deli three nights a week into the elegant, affordable, fine dining venue that Brandon had long been waiting for. Being raised in a very food orientated family, an Italian heritage, his Grandmother's passion for cooking, and working in his mother's deli have all contributed to Alex DellaGrotta's own passion for cooking. Having cooked since he was in high school, and spending a year working as a sous chef in New Zealand for a major international hotel, Alex brings to Della's After Dark an outstanding eclectic knowledge of cuisine and renowned experience in fusion cooking.
I have been going to the deli for years. Della's after dark is the best restaurant in Bandon. Especially a romantic dinner. I love their Duck and would recommend this place to anyone. Love the dim environment and the jazz is great!!!
Della's is a special place midst all the sterile chain restaurants. The food is exquisite and the service attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and intimate. On Friday's and weekends at night there is live Jazz entertainment.
Want to get away from Brandon's lame chain-restaurant menus with their lines and lemmings? Della's After Dark is probably the best-kept secret in town. I've dined there twice, now...and the food, service, and ambience has been wonderful both times. This is where to go for a unique, romantic dinner in Brandon. The appetizers are exquisite,and run from about $5-$7 each for a generous portion. The lobster & corn chowder is stellar, and so are the blackened scallops (served in a nest of fried noodles with a mango and port beurre blanc). The crab and shrimp cake appetizer is also perfect (moist and meaty, with just enough breading to hold it together), and not to be missed. Entrees are also creative, generous, and reasonably priced (running from around $12-$18). I've tried the Ginger and Plantain Crusted Grouper as well as the Raspberry Glazed Half Duck...both exquisite, and both for under $20. Della's has a nice wine list, and the markup is reasonable. They also have live, local jazz on Friday and Saturday nights...it's a perfect accompaniment to the meal, and never too loud to converse over (which I hate). We've eperienced outstanding service on both visits, as well...which can be tough to find in this town. I have tried just about every restaurant in Brandon, and this is the best. If you want something different and special, but don't want to drive to Tampa to get it, try Della's.
