Central Kitchen: "Mussels and Cheese plates" Top 5 Page for this destination Cambridge Restaurant Tip by SullyBiz

Cambridge Restaurants: 100 reviews and 69 photos


The menu at Central Kitchen changes regularly (although you can ALWAYS order the steak) but the quality is always the same. I have never had a meal I didn't love here. At first glance the menu seems limited (there are only 5 or 6 appetizers and 5 or 6 entrees plus the specials) but you can order anything and expect a great meal.

The restaurant is upscale casual, cozy and elegant, but space is limited. This restaurant is on the more expensive side but the quality matches the price. Entrees usually range from $15 to $26. I usually spend about $60 p/p (wine, appetizer, dinner, tip).

Favorite Dish: There is always a good cheese plate and the oysters are great too. The mussels are fantastic.
