This is my American bistro, with a French accent- Michel Richard
This modern American bistro with a French twist is a recipient of the Nation’s highest culinary awards, including winner of the James Beard Foundation Award for Best New Restaurant in the US.
Ideally situated at the corner of 11th & Penn NW, and named for it’s “central” downtown location, Central is just steps away from the National Mall, Smithsonian Museums, Verizon Center, galleries, and downtown theatres.
Central is crafted with Chef Michel Richard’s lively, jovial style of delicious food. After winning international acclaim for his flagship fine dining restaurant Citronelle in Washington, DC’s Georgetown neighborhood, Michel turned his creativity to the “democratization of gastronomy”, creating a restaurant that is welcoming and accessible, “at a price that makes you invite more friends”.
The menu showcases shareable starters for the table, sumptuous appetizers, unique entrees, and delectable desserts.
“I love American food, and I’m French,” says Michel Richard, “so I make great French fries!”
Expect an ambience of lively, casual sophistication, with a je ne sais quoi that only Michel Richard can provide.
