Fall dessert at Central Kitchen + Bar
There’s more to fall than pumpkin spice lattes, and at Central Kitchen + Bar, they’ve added a trio of special dessert items to celebrate the season and all its flavor. You can walk in and order the Apple Pie Crisp, Chocolate Ganache Tart, the Peanut Butter Semifreddo, or maybe all of them?! In addition to those masterpieces, Central is keeping their popular weekly gelato flavor, housemade sorbet and cookie sandwich, so that’s also on the table. Give your tastebuds what they want at 660 Woodward Ave.
