About Centrolina:

Authentic, regional Italian cooking and seasonal availability is the inspiration for Chef Amy Brandwein's menu at Centrolina. Guests, with views of fresh market produce, an open kitchen and terracotta-clad wood oven, are immersed in the cooking experience as they dine. The menu features seasonal and frequently rotating dishes that showcase regional food from all over Italy and relies heavily on what is offered in the chef-driven market. The beverage program features a wine list that combines imported Italian favorites with the best of Virginia, a beer selection that skews heavily local and a short list of classic Italian cocktails given a contemporary twist.

About Chef Amy Brandwein:

At Centrolina restaurant and market in CityCenterDC, Chef and Owner Amy Brandwein shows Washingtonians the versatility, grace, and overall delicacy of Italian cuisine. The three-time James Beard Foundation Award nominee believes food should taste as good as in Italy, plated with pose, and viewed through the seasonal lens of the Mid-Atlantic—tenets she instills in her new fast-casual project, Piccolina, an osteria opening across the alley from Centrolina in July 2019. “I take Italian food and keep it in its raw state but elevate it presentation-wise without complicating it or losing flavor,” Brandwein explains. “There is something inherently captivating about Italian flavors with an artistic and modern edge, while still being fresh and natural.” 

Brandwein and her flagship restaurant have earned many accolades, including James Beard Foundation Award finalist for three consecutive years (2019, 2018, 2017) in the Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic category; nomination for 2019 Upscale Casual Restaurant of the Year by the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington RAMMY Awards; 2018 Chef of the Year at the RAMMY Awards (2018); as well as previous RAMMY Award nominations, including Upscale Casual Restaurant of the Year (2018), Chef of the Year (2018, 2017, 2016), and New Restaurant of the Year (2016), in addition to Rising Culinary Star (2007).
