Love at First Bite
attention to detail. Friendly staff. Food that melts in your mouth. These are
things that you expect in high-end dining. But seriously, how many restaurants
have you been to that really get this right on all touch points.
Centro, you had me at the bread. Actually, you had me years ago when I first
had a taste of your brand while contracted to write for your website redesign. But,
as far as re-acquaintances to the palette go, butter on bread comes pretty
close to you swooning me off my feet again.
The evening first
official tasting was a delicious spread of Classic Rillette – a first
for me, but highly recommended by my lovely new foodie friends @theculturepearl
and @EliseDertinger. It did not disappoint. My fave was the mustard spread -
recipe anyone? The lovely folks
@CentroTO threw in some extra samples of their House-made Charcuterie Board (more mustard, so yum), and Crispy Tiger Shrimp with
sun-dried tomato aioli.
splurging on a feast of appetizers, we were still scrumptiously awaiting a
taste of our main. Opting for the Lobster Risotto – the portion quite
manageable in size – was a good choice. Well, despite needing a little bit of
Napoleon was the crème de la crème of the night. A lovely layered dessert of
pastry, hazelnuts, topped off with a pear gelee. Although my pastry was a bit
harder to cut into elegantly, @EliseDertinger had no problem at all. But my
small misfortune didn’t stop me into gobbling up – oh, I don’t think that’s a
foodie term – the taste of heaven.
All in all,
it was love at first sight and bite at Centro Restaurant, 2472 Yonge Street,
Toronto. #SukasaStyle gives it 8.5 Sukasa Stars.
