Le Central (Bristol RI) - Anyone tried it yet?

I just heard about this new French Bistro, very recently opened in Bristol. Curious to hear your impressions... how tasty and authentic French it is... (Hope to try it myself soon.)

  1. The only thing I can tell you is the chef has a extensive backround in french cuisene. He used to chef at a similar restaurant in San Fran.

          1. My post from our July visit:

            We stumbled across this spending a few days in Bristol while looking at boats in nearby Portsmouth. It looked charming, like a bisto should, cafe curtains, black and white tiled floor, tasteful and understated. As her main, my wife had an appetizer of mussels in a parsely garlic butter. I had Tajine- Charmoula braised Shrimp, Mussels and Cod in Tomato, Bell Pepper and Preserved Lemon broth, Cinnamon Cous Cous. Both served in tiny cast iron dutch oven-like pots. Hot, fresh baguette from Bristol Bakery. I had chocolate bread pudding for dessert and my wife had a fresh berry and peach gelato with a ginger cookie. Both excellent. Service was impeccable- friendly and casual yet professional and knowledgeable. We were extremely pleased.
