  1. Thats the corner of 9W?

  2. Central kitchen definitely needs to educate themselves on food photography. And learn that NO discerning NJ food establishment would show tomatoes in February!

      We believe the photos were from a camera phone just to be a “teaser” for people. Also, they were posted in early December. Not sure when they were taken though.

  3. February or not, they need to up their game on the “tomatoes”. Those things don’t even count. I will definitely give this place a shot nevertheless.
