South Union is a casual, fun lunch spot. They are super busy, so give yourself enough time. All the sandwiches are awesome. Get a half sandwich unless you're super hungry; they're huge. Enjoy the free bread on the side too!

I love the bacon turkey melt, but it is tough to get in if you are any bit after 11. The hours are brief, so get there between 11-2 or you will miss out on the great food.

I love South Union for lunch, but be careful on how much time you have because sometimes the line is out the door and there isn't anywhere to sit inside. Today I had a Turkey Bacon Melt - fantastic! It was a Monday at noon - there wasn't a line to order, but we did get the last table to sit.

Centro has gone downhill since their initial chef left. The wine list is still good, but the food and service are lacking. The last two times I've been in, I've been ignored by whatever snooting bartender was on duty.
Our anniversary was a sham - it was a Sunday night (so their normal kitchen crew probably had the night off) and the duck was overdone, the marsala tasted like a salt-lick, and the server didn't make any move to correct the problem when we told her about it. She said, "OK," and left.
This is mainly a place to go if you want to see people vying for dates with money. It's good for people watching, but stick with the simpler food items like the brushetta. That's if you can find your server.

PROS: Fun atmosphere, good location
CONS: Poor service and food.
