After the folks at Tres Gatos bought the much-loved Centre Street Café and revised the menu, Jamaica Plain finally had what it was sorely missing: a cozy neighborhood spot serving Italian food done right. The menu is careful not to stretch itself too thin—a modest selection of appetizers and entrees ensure that each dish is given the attention it deserves.
The rebranding didn’t erase the old Café’s roots entirely—the daytime menu still offers JPers the brunch and lunch foodstuffs they’d expect (albeit with subtle Italian twists). Centre Street Café might just be Jamaica Plain’s answer to the North End.
