Centro Vinoteca or The Harrison?

My sisters and I are getting together for dinner. 2 of us are big foodies and the other is semi-foodie but generally cares more about the atmosphere then the food ( a fight we have a lot with her!)

Anyways I've made reservations for dinner at both and I haven't been to either before. I just want some opinions on food and atmosphere at both places and which one you think we should go to.

Thanks :)

  1. I'm mad at Leah for kissing Hosea, so I'd say the Harrison.

    1. Harrison. Three words: duck fat fries!

      1. I'm a big fan of Harrison. Their sardine app and sweetbread app are great, as is the duck entree.

        1. neither are great food wise but id go to harrison over centro vinoteca these days.

          1. I went to Centro vinoteca twice. The first time was in January of last year and I liked it. I went back last July and the food was sub par. The service was also bad. I would not suggest this restaurant to anyone. I don't seem to be the only one not liking it because the restaurant was empty on a Thursday night last July.

              Agreed. Centro Vinoteca was good when it first opened but is very mediocre now. Go to the Harrison.
