Fried chicken, short ribs, hamburgers, and even banana splits appear on his menu with a special flair that only Richard can provide. Central represents the young contemporary vibe that Michel Richard lives by every day. His lifelong romance with cuisine is the focal point of his incredible joie de vivre and his mythical quest in producing the amazing and unexpected, results in yet more whimsical mixtures waiting to be consumed and appreciated.
