First Bites: Central Provisions

I’ll keep this entry short and sweet. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Central Provisions since it opened in February. Well, ladies & gents, you can believe the hype. I was presented with some of the prettiest and tastiest food I’ve had in recent months and I can’t wait to try more. The GM/co-owner did end up asking me how I liked my dessert selection. She mentioned it was a relative’s recipe, so naturally I didn’t have the heart to say that I preferred the one a friend had made recently for my birthday, but only because this crust was a little too hard to break with a fork. Seriously though, that is 100% nit-picking. An added bonus was that despite being a craft cocktail bar, they also offer mixed drinks suitable for teetotalers like myself. Portions, flavors, textures, service, and atmosphere were all top notch. Run, don’t walk!
