Dining At Central In Washington DC

A little while back I ate at Citronelle, which was rated the #1 restaurant in Washington DC. This time around, we headed over to Central, which is also owned by Michel Richard, and is rated the #4 restaurant in Washington DC. The idea behind Central I believe is to offer unique higher-end food, at a more affordable rate in a more laid back atmosphere.\r\n\r\nI started off with Michel??s charcuterie plate, which includes prosciutto, salami, garlic sausage and faux gras:\r\n

\r\n\r\nMarcel had the filet mignon tar tar and french fries. This was my first time eating beef tar tar, I can’t really say it’s for me.\r\n

\r\n\r\nFor my entree I had heard the burgers here were amazing, so I had to try it. I was pretty disappointed:\r\n


\r\n\r\nIt looks great, and it tasted pretty good, but it wasn’t “amazing”.\r\n\r\nAndrew had the filet mignon as his entree, which I tried and thought was decent:\r\n

\r\n\r\nAs usual I forget to take dessert pictures until too late, but I still got a bit. Andrew had the banana split, which was amazing!\r\n

\r\n\r\nI had the chocolate mousse, which was also very good.\r\n

\r\n\r\nI’d have to say that we all thought Central was a bit over hyped for what it was. The food was alright, but we thought the desserts were phenomenal. It isn’t anywhere near as expensive as the $1,600 dinner we had at Citronelle, so I still think it’s worth checking out if you’re ever in DC.
