Centro- main menu vs. tapas?

I was first of all wondering if anyone had been to Centro lately.. and if so, if it was any good/what did you have etc.?
Secondly, when Im looking at the menu on line, I see they have a main menu, and a tapas menu too.. Can you order from both? WHat are the portions of the mains menu appatisers vs. the tapas menu? Is this place worth going at all?

  1. Centro is not every good and an extreme rip-off when you factor in the price. The place is best avoided., period.

    1. That's quite an adddtion to the board wordsworth!

      I have been to Centro about 10 times since the renovation-both upstairs and down, and have been very happy on all occasions. The room is beautiful, service incredible and terrific food. Prices aren't cheap but are what you'd expect in a restaurant of it's kind. Apps upstairs are about $8.00-$20, mains $20-$40. As I said, not cheap-but it is one of the finest restaurants in the city. Tapas downstairs range from about $8.00-$15.00. I'm pretty sure you can't order off the downstairs menu whie sitting upstairs. Give it a try and enjoy!! In my opinion-way better value than N44.

        i was trying to decide mainly b/w N44 and Centro.. so thats good to know..

      2. Last time I was there a couple of months ago, they had deconstructed the plates in the main dining room so you have to order sides. Pretty hefty pricing all in. Basement tapas is a better option IMHO. Portions are fair overall, just prices high. Similar sizes between apps and tapas. There are better options in midtown.
