Christopher surprised me the other day with a date night at 11 Central, a restaurant in Downtown Bangor next to Bagel Central and Friar's Bake Shop.
This is a perfect date restaurant. The atmosphere is modern but classy. We started off our evening at the bar where we had mixed drinks (I tried a peach cosmo!) and bruschetta for an appetizer. The bartenders were super friendly and knowledgeable.
For dinner I had a BBQ chicken pizza and Christopher had a Lobster Artichoke Alfredo pizza. Ever since we left California, I have been searching for another place that serves awesome pizza like California Pizza Kitchen. This one is definitely a contender. They also had a lot of dessert options, but we were too stuffed to partake in any.
11 Central features different local artists on their walls. They also host winter wine dinners that they pair with provincial cuisine.
My one teeny complaint about this restaurant, is that the wait is long. As I said before, it is a great date restaurant, but not so fantastic if you are in a rush.
If you are looking for somewhere special in Downtown Bangor, give 11 Central a try.
