Platter, please: Central Food’s New Year’s Day Brunch Platter returns Jan. 1

December 20, 2017 GMT

You don’t have to be hungover to enjoy the New Year’s Day Brunch Platter at Central Food in Kendall yards. But the expansive offering just might help cure what ails you after a night of revelry and imbibing bubbly.

Served on baking sheets so large they have to be wheeled to tables, the specialty platters typically include a smorgasbord of house-made bread, pickled vegetables, fresh fruit, deviled eggs, sliced meats, a variety of fruit and other spreads, bacon, tacos, an oversize cinnamon roll and more.

For some gourmands, it’s become a New Year’s Day tradition.

Platters are $60 each and are meant to serve four “hungry hungover people,” said chef-owner David Blaine. But a couple could share it and bring home leftovers to enjoy later in the day. Larger groups –of seven or eight – might want to split two.

Central Food will also be serving its full brunch menu from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 1 at 1335 W. Summit Parkway. Call (509) 315-8036. On the web: eatcentralfood.com and www.facebook.com/eatcentralfood.
