This is my American bistro, with a French accent- Michel Richard
For intimate parties or large gatherings, entertain your guests with menus by one of the world’s most emulated and respected chefs. Central is an American bistro with French flair, situated in the heart of the nation's capital.
Central features a large open main dining room that can accommodate up to 120 seated guests, and 250 for receptions. At the entrance, our 11th Street Lounge is ready to host your happy hour, with cocktail tables and bar seating for 20.
A semi-private area screened by copper mesh curtains seats up to 25, with a spectacular view of Central’s bustling open kitchen.
The Jean-Louis Palladin Room: For gatherings that require a more personal and intimate touch, Central offers a private dining room tucked away beside the kitchen, where a world-class team of chefs prepare customized menus paired with the sommelier’s finest selections.
Designed to accommodate small groups up to 16ppl, the room features the latest audio-visual requirements. Curtains can be pulled for privacy, or left open for a peak of the live cooking show a few feet away.
