This Washington DC restaurant is a multi-faceted space that features a quick service counter and a specialty coffee bar that is transformed into a mini cocktail bar at night. Centrolina is an open-kitchen concept restaurant that includes a booth with a direct view of the chef's table.

Centrolina was designed to feel like an Italian market and osteria combined with the laid-back feeling of a Californian upscale market. Designed by the architecture and design firm CORE, Centrolina is Chef Amy Brandwein's first solo restaurant and is certainly in a class of its own. The restaurant also features a private dining room that boasts a driftwood chandelier.

This charismatic Washington DC restaurant is characterized by its welcoming open-kitchen, fresh produce market and its terracotta-clad wooden oven.
