In ten days, I am leaving for Taiwan. I am going to claim the other half of me for a month. I hope to have inspiration and excitement to post engaging experiences from the other side of the globe. In the meantime, I need to finish writing the 16 posts that I have in the queue in a short and possibly boring manner…
I went to Centro in Greenwich, CT with a lot of work friends, including agency partners. Overall, the food is better than expected and above average. The appetizers, mainly their European thin crust pizza, are so much better than their entrée. So order the pizza when you are there!
Rigatoni alla Vodka: Prosciutto, peas, tomato cream sauce, crunchy bread crumbs.
Balsamic Mustard Glazed Salmon: Over spinach risotto.
Shrimp Splendido: Sautéed with tomatoes, basil, capers & garlic tossed with homemade spaghetti, topped with crumbled feta cheese.
Mixed Grill: Shrimp, chicken, Italian sausage, garlic scallion butter, roasted potatoes.
Grilled Skirt Steak: Chimichurri with roasted fennel mashed potatoes. Guess whose dish this is? Too greasy. My original steak was not medium but well done. In fact, they made a mistake in taking our large group order and someone (thank you, Jen!) gave me her “rare” steak that is just the right medium.
The restaurant is next to a stream with water flowing down a wall and over rocks. The patio overlooking the water feature was a selling point. The cocktail list was cute. Pizza was good. Should return.
