Designed to reflect the bustling street shops and colorful rituals of everyday life in Mexico, the restaurant is comprised of three distinct dining spaces all under one roof. The Taqueria features a casual atmosphere where a lively open kitchen serves authentic favorites. The Tequileria allows guests to dine or lounge as mixologists craft Latin cocktails from 200 Tequilas & Mezcals. Along the rooftop guests raise a glass at two open-air bars. Warm, Latin-inspired service and welcoming hospitality will round out your experience.
For food, our server brought us a plate of chips with salsa, guacamole,and shrimp ceviche to start. The menu mentioned a choice of fruit salad, but she did not bring that and we did not bother to ask. Then we placed our first orders in - the Enfrijoladas caught my eye and were the most "breakfasty" thing I ate next to the Mexican French Toast. I loved the bean sauce on top and thought the eggs were really fluffy. We also ordered the Jalisco Enchiladas, which were very rich with the pepper sauce and could have been slightly warmer in temperature. Next, we ordered a few tacos and Keith asked for some hot sauce on the side. When asked if he wanted medium or spicy, Keith chose the latter and boy, was it spicy. The first taste made his tongue numb, but he found some of the dishes really needed an extra kick. We managed to stay for less than two hours, as service was pretty quick. We could have stayed longer since we did not have other plans and were not being rushed out by the staff, but I was totally stuffed. El Centro's brunch is a great deal with authentic Mexican food and a fun twist on traditional breakfast food. I was surprised that many tables around us did not take advantage of the bottomless deal, rather opting for items a la carte. This place would be fun for small groups and I would like to check out the heated roof deck next time.
