It's been a while since I've done my last food review( here) and I am so disappointed in myself for that because I have been to some great places since then. I'm definitely going to start doing them again because I love sharing great my culinary experience. Today's review is for the DC restaurant, Central Michel Richard.
So this past weekend, Krystin and I were hanging out doing our blogger girl stuff. There was a lot of posing, picture taking and shopping involved. Well like any true fashionistas, we had to find some where fabulous to eat. Well Krystin, being the fat girl at heart that she is, suggested we go to Central, a French/American restaurant, located off of pennsylvania ave in downtown DC.
To starter, we tried frog legs, for the first time mind you, and I have to say if you are going to try frog legs, try them here! These fried nuggets of amazingness were served with a very delicious barbecue sauce and tangy cole slaw. I am usually a very adventurous eater but I was really hesitant about trying frog legs. The "bone" in it just threw me off. I'm happy I tried it though because it was really good.
For dessert, I had a very elaborate version of a napoleon. Though very very beautiful to look at this dessert wasn't as amazing as I was hoping it was going to be. I believe it needed some kind of fruit component to really enhance the dish.
Krystin's dessert was a Cream brûlée. She told me that she enjoyed it but it was a bit lack luster considering how much she enjoyed the frog legs and Sea bass. I was able to taste the fruit sauce and that was exactly what my dessert was missing! If that mango or raspberry sauce was used in my napoleon, I think that it would have been amazing!!!
Try or Trash? I would recommend you try this restaurant.
