CenPho has a new spot for comfort food and craft cocktails: 2601 on Central.
The "cross-country regional" menu aims to bring give comfort food a Southwest influence, with dishes like a beef/chorizo meatloaf and street tacos, and an ambitious cocktail plan.
The bar has at least five different classic cocktails like the Moscow mule and the martini — with plans to change them seasonally. Want to sample a mule made with gin, grapefruit juice, lavender syrup, and ginger beer? Order a flight at happy hour and try that one and another two for a total of $10. The Bloody Mary features house-made pickled eggs, spicy pickles, sausage, bleu cheese-stuffed olives, and cucumber slices.
