Small plates…HUGE flavors

So last nights rendezvous at Centro was as usual… impeccable! We started with a couple of drinks, along with some gratis tuscan olive oil and focaccia bread. We moved onto a review of the menu, and decided to sample a bunch of the small plates offered, and one of the evenings specials. The small plate selections of the night that graced our hearty table… bacon wrapped medjool dates stuffed with a creamy and spicy gorgonzola cheese, the centro meatballs mixed with pignolis and raisins in a light tomato sauce, zucchini fritters served with a spicy tomato sauce, eggplant caponata accompanied by chickpea fritters with goat cheese, a caprese salad offered with the most melt-in-your-mouth burrata, a pesto sauce and thickly sliced tomatoes! As for the special that was ordered, a light and flaky bronzini perfectly prepared and beautifully seasoned rested on a celery root purée.
There are no other words that I can use to describe the constant delight that is experienced every-time we step foot through their doors! If I can say anything, it is try it out for yourself and tell them the-kitchen-guru sent you!

at a low simmer…
