Review Preview: Central Café and Bakery

Posted By on Tue, Feb 15, 2011 at 9:00 AM

This week I visit Central Café & Bakery, a Lebanese restaurant that opened in the Central West End late last year:

When the rotisserie chicken is ready, the temptation to forgo fork and knife and rip it to shreds with your fingers is strong. Resist: This bird is very hot. The flavor is remarkable, chicken's natural essence infused with the char of the grill, a strong note of garlic and the tartness of lemon or, more likely, the lemon-like flavor of sumac. On the side is a small dish of garlic sauce for added pop. Not that the chicken needs it.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late this afternoon or check back here tomorrow morning to see what I think.
