Central Michele Richard
I was there last night as well. Based on the inexpensive menu and the interesting beer selections - including Bell's Amber Ale of Kalamazoo (a much celebrated beer among Midwesterners/Chicagoans) - it appears they are trying to go the "gastro-pub" route, a la Spotted Pig, etc., but the feel of the place is more high-end, clean, airy - so, I'm not sure it all fits together.
I was in last night...
Beautiful space! Love the wine room and open kitchen.
Very warm colors and atmosphere.
Small wine by the glass list.
Menu looks interesting as well.
We tried the mushroom pearl pasta risotto--skip it...
and also the Faux Gras Terrine (chicken liver terrine) which was fab.
