Wish (formerly Centro): don't bother

I finally made it to Wish, which occupies the former space of Centro on Mass Ave near Central Sq in Cambridge. Centro was very good, so I had high hopes for Wish.

We sat at the bar and watched a great basketball game, drank excellent classic martinis, and suffered through woefully sub-par food. A gourmet-style personal brick oven pizza that was unforgivably bland, with sauce that tasted like it was from a jar. Tasteless cod with limp vegetables. All around there was no seasoning, no effort, no thought or knowledge of food. Yet priced like a serious restaurant.

Oh well, win some lose some, won't be back.
