Met some friends Wednesday night for dinner at Bar Cento. We absolutely love this group of bars - Bier Markt, Bar Cento and Speakeasy - and try to come at least once a month.
But, this was the first time my husband and our friends had come for the food and, as usual, it was amazing. We started with pomme frittes for the table - aka the world's most delicious french fries. A pile of fresh cut fries cooked in duck fat with whole cloves or garlic and rosemary, served with ketchup and a variety of seasoned mayo selections (curry, garlic, etc.)
For our entrees, we each chose something different from the menu.
Ohio Beef Burger - grilled onions, cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo, super-delicious fries on the side
Fettucini - delicious sauce, "little meatballs"
Sunnyside pizza - eggs, bacon, perfect for the "brinner" lover
Egg pappardelle - duck confit, apples, golden raisins, perfection
And, as if it couldn't get any better, we finished off the night with a scoop of Jeni's ice cream - Gouda with vodka-plumped cherries.
Can't wait for our next trip back and looking forward to the opening of their next adventure:
Market Garden Brewery - opening across the street on W. 25th in Ohio City
