This spacious, breezy restaurant-café-bar transitions seamlessly from day to night. Mornings see patrons sipping cappuccinos and sampling dishes like egg sandwiches and cinnamon French toast, with sunlight pouring in through the huge wooden windows that face the street. Come lunchtime, it’s hearty sandwiches - grilled fish on baguette, Philly cheesesteaks - and fresh salads.
As night falls, the cylindrical lamps that dangle over the bar’s shiny metal countertop provide ambient lighting for cocktails and dinner, where main courses include spaghetti Amatriana (fresh tomato, bacon, shallots and parmesan), grilled chicken with coconut mashed potatoes, and pub fare like fish and chips. Guests can lounge in woven rattan armchairs or dine at one of the mismatched wooden tables, seated beneath Café Central’s high ceilings and exposed brick walls. The party gets going at 9 P.M., when the Filipino house band takes center stage.
