Last year, Centeno resurrected Pete's cafe in the Old Bank District building. He partnered with original owner Pete McLaughlin. The restaurant needed a face lift and now another delicious Centeno masterpiece has opened which makes it a trifecta in the area for him at 4th and Main.
The menu is amazing as you can see. Thirty day aged beef Carpaccio, delicious winter grilled veggies, an over the top burger, and baked eggs with tomato, beef and green chiles. He's working a strong set of farmers market-driven vegetable dishes, plus robust meat courses packed with flavor yet undergirded by old-school technique.
The cocktails are fun. If you have to ruin Champagne with a juice, well Blood Orange makes a fine Mimosa.
Ledlow is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu features pretty traditional American faire. Dinners include Hanger Steaks, Pork Shoulder, great Fish and even Meatballs and Spaetzle. Next time we are ordering the Baked Alaska or Souffle.
The food is delicious and the very helpful friendly wait staff will take very good care of you. Chalk another one up for Centeno.
