The beloved Village institution Caffe Dante closed in the spring of 2015, but new owners took over a few weeks later. They may have trimmed the name a bit, but they haven’t gone short on honoring the spirit of the place. The original dates back to 1915, and was once the stomping grounds of Anais Nin, Ernest Hemingway, Robert Mapplethorpe, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan and many other beatniks, artists, and writers. Score one for the good guys. (Dante, 79-81 Macdougal St. 212-982-5275.)
