that's a really good way of putting it. I would agree. I've always enjoyed my Centro experiences, but there are better ones out there.
At any rate, that is completely laughable.
People vote by habit. Same old thing. Its the same reason Ch 8 news wins best newscast every year, yet the Ch 13 crew win all the individual awards. In the same publication! How does that work?!
This place just recently opened. I'm sure at least 1 of the in-laws would enjoy it.

Centro is more of a popular spot than a great restaurant. They DO have some great menu items, including some of the best pizza in town if you like true New York style pizza. The thing that makes them popular is an awesome atmosphere, great staff, and very diverse menu in terms of both food and price. You could get out of there for $10 a head or $80 a head, depending on what you want from the experience.
One of our favorite local restaurants in Des Moines is Chef's Kitchen at Franklin and Beaver. An great restaurant with a small but great menu.
