Small plates done right. Central Provisions made various national Best New Restaurant lists when it opened in 2014, and it’s only upped its game since. The ever-changing menu skews way local and divies up simply: hot, cold, raw, and sweet. Maine tuna crudos are a mainstay on the raw menu, and they’re typical of the restaurant’s style: simple, fresh, flavorful, and elegantly plated. On a Friday night, this place is date-night central. Grab a seat at the long bar with the scenesters (on a bar stool made from Maine-forged iron and recycled burlap) or head to the basement for more of a rathskeller feel. There’s a limited menu available late and between lunch and dinner.
