Centro Cocina Mexicana Restaurant Review: Centro is a longtime local favorite for quality regional Mexican food in an upscale setting. The atmosphere is lively, the service friendly, and the food showcases the best of what Mexico has to offer --- making it a good choice for a celebratory dinner or night out with friends. Dishes are carefully crafted with fresh, local ingredients. Starters include grilled Monterey Bay squid and shrimp, and pork and plantain empanadas, while mains include enchiladas suizas with Sierra Nevada jack cheese, a burrito with homemade chorizo, and wood-grilled local rockfish. The bar is a lively hangout before or after a meal, featuring more than 150 tequilas and more than a dozen Oaxacan mezcals.
