It's a wonderfully eclectic bistro, with great food, impeccable service (Michael) and superb live music. A hidden gem- don't miss!

On the night we went we had a 5:00 reservation. First slot of the night. You were out of chicken? How does that even happen? Second choice – grouper. Out of that also. Really, with such a limited menu, you should be sure to have the kitchen stocked up with what you are offering. Anyway, the mahi-mahi that I had was wonderful, and I tried brussel sprouts for the first time since I was about ten and discovered I no longer despise them! Our server and hostess were also very friendly and helpful. I would recommend offering an occasional evening of NO jazz as everyone does not enjoy it. Maybe mix it up with different types of music. I would definitely bring my parents here or maybe come back for a special occasion dinner.

What You'll Get

Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of creative starters, salads, pastas, and desserts at Della's After Dark. Redeem your Groupon any time Thursday through Saturday for dinner at the Brandon-based American bistro.

Della's After Dark is the Teen Wolf of eateries, morphing from a demure deli into a swanky spot for savories come sundown. Slurp a “seafood margarita” ($7), a combo of lime, mango, cilantro, shrimp, crab, and squid, or skate toasted french bread across an oozy caldron of baked goat-cheese marinara ($7). Fresh, colorful salads, including the grape tomato and boccocini ($8) drizzled with balsamic vinegar, pleasantly stretch stomach muscles in preparation for the main course. Della's menu also offers a variety of protein-based plates, from pan-Asian seared tofu ($14) to grilled swordfish bedded with sundried-tomato pesto and parmesan polenta ($18). Desserts change nightly; recent sweets include bananas foster and sticky date pudding.

Live jazz and creatively presented plates help morph the deli into a swanky hot spot. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, the counter is covered with black curtains, and tables are decked out with white linens and candles. Conceived as a small, family-run deli, owner Beverly DellaGrotta's son Alex took the reins in 2001 and envisioned the space as a sleek destination for fine dining or for being seen dining in fine-fitting tricornes.
