Centrolina – Fried Green Tomatoes


“This dish is great because it is very flavorful and reflective of the start of tomato season. Green tomatoes and cherry tomatoes signify the start of summer. This recipe has Italian notes of basil and burrata with a punch of pickled ramps leftover from your spring garden.” – Amy Brandwein. Chef & Owner, Centrolina.

This recipe gives back to DC Urban Greens, a local urban farm that serves the DC community and provides Centrolina with fresh vegetables throughout the year.


At Centrolina restaurant and market in CityCenterDC, Chef and Owner Amy Brandwein shows Washingtonians the versatility, grace, and overall delicacy of Italian cuisine. The four-time James Beard Award nominee believes food should taste as good as in Italy, plated with pose, and viewed through the seasonal lens of the Mid-Atlantic – tenets she instills in her fast-casual project, Piccolina, an osteria that opened across the alley from Centrolina in July 2019. “I take Italian food and keep it in its raw state but elevate it presentation-wise without complicating it or losing flavor,” Amy explains. “There is something inherently captivating about Italian flavors with an artistic and modern edge, while still being fresh and natural.”
