Centre Street Cafe Restaurant Review:

Tres Gatos tapas bar owners David Doyle and Maricely Perez-Alers and wine director Keith Harmon have teamed to own and totally transform Centre Street Cafe. The result is an Italian restaurant that focuses on locally sourced ingredients. We like starting off with a carafe of red wine while snacking on prosciutto and aged provolone. If you prefer things spicier, try the crispy potato fritters topped with chili pepper and porcini aïoli. For the main event, any of the homemade pasta dishes deliver, like the linguine with littlenecks or buckwheat pasta with potato, kale and sage pesto. For a bigger appetite, consider the stuffed short rib braciole made with creamy polenta, crunchy pine nuts and fresh cauliflower, all served in a tangy tomato sauce. Save room for a creamy cannoli made by pastry chef Allyson West. Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays.
