Central Kitchen + Bar

Welcome to Centrál, where you will be introduced to rustic Modern American Fusion cuisine . Centrál represents the diversity of California with influences from almost every continent. Part adventure, part familiar, part unexpected-it is our pleasure to acquaint you with our cuisine and its mecca of flavors.

With the picturesque setting of Laguna Beach, California, Centrál’s rustic design provides the perfect backdrop for our signature ceviche and specialty cocktails.

Whether you’re a vegetarian, pescatarian, or a meat eater, we want you to come to Centrál knowing that your healthy eating lifestyle doesn’t have to change. Aside from the fact that we’re serving farm-fresh, organic foods and grass-fed beef, you won’t have to compromise any aspect of your diet here at Centrál. We look forward to serving you soon.

¡Salud y buen provecho!

Our Love for Food

There’s nothing like vibrant ceviche or rotisserie chicken anywhere in the world, and now you can experience it right here in Southern California. It’s important to us that we remain absolutely authentic to rustic Modern American Fusion cuisine, but we’ve added a contemporary take on the presentation that really shows off the beauty of our dishes.

On our menu, you’ll find Spanish influence in the Empanadas, Asian inspiration in the Loma Saltado and Quinoa Chaufa, Middle Eastern in the Anticuchos (skewers), African in the Tacu Tacus and Italian in the Tallarines Verdes Con Pollo — truly a multi-faceted and dynamic cuisine.

We’re introducing gourmet rustic Modern American Fusion cuisine to Laguna Beach, which is something even foodies here in the United States don’t normally get to enjoy. I guess you could say we’ve created this special menu for our people and all the people we’re adopting into the family!
