Help with Central!

Just scored a reservation for Saturday night at Central which I've been dying to get to, but I want help ordering! My boyfriend and I are both charcuterie lovers and I've heard good things about theirs...what else is good lately?

    Just wrote a big review was there last week with friends, here is the link. Onion Tart was our favorite appetizer. Get the lobster burger, it is sooo good. But save room for the Kit Kat Bar if you like chocolate. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/416024

      Great report! Thanks! I'd love to hear opinions of the lobster burger versus the tuna burger... Although my BF would almost certainly go for a hanger steak if there is one on the menu.

      Definitely planning on getting a dessert since I hear so much about the ones at Citronelle..

        I didn't love the lobster burger--a bit to greasy for me. My husband's hamburger was excellent though, and a friend had the tuna burger and thoroughly enjoyed.
        Agree 100% on the onion tart. And, as people have posted on here, the Gougers are a must for sharing.

          Blue Cheese salad was killer!

            i really enjoyed the lobster burger and the filet mignon tartar was great also, but it is a huge portion, definitely needs to be shared!
