Rum. Fire. Barbacoa.

Imagine going beyond a culinary experience. That´s La Central.

Rediscover the bold flavors you love from renowned Chef Mario Pagán and get immersed into Puerto Rico’s roots and traditions as you join us on an unprecedented culinary journey that will ignite your palate.

La Central pays homage to a fundamental emblem of Puerto Rico’s history: “la caña de azúcar”, through the creative use of sugarcane & rum in its dishes.

The heat of the charcoal grill is palpable from the dining room in this open kitchen concept, where guests can enjoy a decadent tomahawk steak or a crispy branzino cooked to perfection over an open flame. La Central’s entrées are sizable, meant to be shared among friends or family with cocktails or a bottle of wine from the sommelier’s selection. 

Straw-woven accents & industrial metal finishes accentuate the main dining room, lit by round chandeliers that evoke a brief reminiscence of the past- quickly brought back to life by the energy of the open charcoal kitchen & the bustle of the evening crowd. 

Sky-high ceilings frame the prominent copper rum still in the heart of the bar, setting the tone for the restaurant’s rum-forward cocktail menu. 

With multiple seating areas, including an outdoor space with a bar, you can enjoy a breath of fresh air with drinks prepared by the finest mixologists. 

See and don’t be seen from the discrete walls of the cigar room, offering unparalleled views of the dining room whilst remaining carefully hidden. Discreetly enjoy a glass of aged rum or light a cigar from our curated, hand-rolled selection; in essence, a cigar aficionado’s dream come true. 

Chef Mario Pagán’s appetite for new techniques while staying true to Puerto Rico’s heritage proves that an upscale cuisine combined with fire are a timeless match worthy of your palate.

You’ll find La Central right in the heart of DISTRITO T-Mobile, next to the Coca-Cola Music Hall.
