Lot 1 -- Post Centeno

rockymountainoyster Jan 30, 2009 02:25 PM

Has anyone been since the August or so when Josef Centeno left?

This was one of my favorite local haunts last spring and summer, but I haven't ventured back because of the chef change...

    Are they even open?

      Yes, they're open but empty most of the time. What a tremendous crash and burn!

      We ate there on Centeno's last night. He looked somber and stoic that evening, but the food was spot on. Haven't ventured back either.

      His menu consulting at Bar Celona did improve things, but not to the point of bringing us back for follow up visits. A bit off topic, but some of the portions at BC were way too small for the $. Oh well.
