Lunch at Michel Richard's Central

We had an excellent lunch at Michel Richard's new "bistro"--Central--yesterday. The place is very attractive and the menu extremely appealing.

Among the three of us, we had appetizers of beautifully cooked asparagus and a wonderful mussel chowder. The "main courses" were a perfectly cooked hamburger, a succulent tuna burger and very tasty grilled salmon on a bed of delicious lentils. We ordered one side--brussels sprouts; they were tasty but sort of overwhelmed by a bacony sauce. One dessert was tasted....an apple pan dowdy with great filling, a less successful crust and a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream.

One negative was that we saw the hamburger and tuna burger languishing in the serving area for about 10 minutes before being delivered to the table...so the hamburger was no longer hot.

Prices were very high for the burgers....$16 and $18...but more reasonable for the appetizers and main courses.

All in all, everyone enjoyed their meal and will be happy to return in the not too distant future.

    Just a question, but how did you enjoy the meal if the hamburger was not hot? At those prices I want the food hot.

      According to the person who had the hamburger, it was still good, although not "hot".
