If you haven’t yet experienced the urban oasis that is the patio at DANTE (Royal Sonesta Hotel, 40 Edwin Land Boulevard, Cambridge), what are you waiting for? Lucky you: chef Dante de Magistris is offering the perfect opportunity on September 18 at 7 pm, with an end-of-summer, three-course rustic Italian dinner — paired with Italian-inspired cocktails, of course. The cost is $85, excluding tax and gratuity; call 617.497.4200 for reservations or information on a rain date.
