After closing their dining room on March 20, Centro Cafe 808 E. Center St., has announced that they are officially reopening for carry-out beginning today.

The popular Riverwest restaurant is offering a pared down menu including garlic bread and salads along with pastas like lasagna, housemade gnudi and shrimp scampi and gluten-free pizza.

Additional offerings will be added in the coming weeks.

For the sake of safety, all orders should be placed online with touchless pick-up available at their front window.

Hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday from 3 to 8 p.m.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
