Dumpling Week!


Nel Centro is thrilled to join select Portland restaurants in The Oregonian’s Fifth Annual Dumpling Week. This is our third consecutive year participating in Dumpling Week, and Chef Luis has outdone himself with this year’s offering — Truffled Ricotta & Pancetta Ravioli in Parmesan Brodo.

These dumplings will be available during Dumpling Week only (Feb 1st through 9th) and they are not to be missed!

For the month of February, Nel Centro will be donating a portion of the proceeds from our English Pea Agnolotti (pictured above) to help support two different organizations that are doing very important work in our community — Right2Survive and Sisters of The Road.
