French powerhouse chef Michel Richard has set up camp Downtown with this semicasual bistro offering up Franco-American spin-offs like fried chicken, bacon-and-onion tart, and a ginger-flecked Ahi tuna burger. Light fixtures are subtly stamped with the word "Central." A jazzy portrait of Richard (think Andy Warhol) stares down from one wall. The mood is playful and low-key; cocktails and champagne flow. And there are even a few carryovers from Richard's dearly departed four-star flagship, Citronelle, such as "Michel's Chocolate Bar," the chef's sinful house-made riff on a Kit Kat wafer.
