Centro's brunch menu features a breakfast pizza with scrambled eggs, Italian sausage, green pepper, mushroom and red onion.

Centro Brings Spring Flavor in Updated Offering

If you're looking for some sign of spring after the snow this week, Centro has thrown a twist of it into its menu, with a spring rendition of the restaurant's classic half-chicken dish. Centro also offers brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

More than a decade ago, Centro energized the downtown Des Moines dining scene with urban-chic ambiance and grand-scale ambition. Its appeal endures: On any given night, the room swells with the animated buzz of a contented crowd. Some pile in for restaurateur-chef George Formaro and executive chef Derek Eidson’s satisfying and sincere takes on Italian-American food (Mama’s meatballs, red-sauced cavatelli and the like). Others seek out the more refined side of the menu, such as seared sea scallops with cauliflower agnolotti. The latter crowd should always check out the daily features.

The restaurant reopened in early February after undergoing renovations.
