The Scene: When we arrived at Central Table Food Hall in the late afternoon, the restaurant seemed like a shell of its regular self. Every station in the grandiose Central West End food hall that normally features an abundance of offerings seemed to have its lights out except for the bar and "Hearth," where the oven burned brightly.

Unbeknownst to us, this period of the day served as a time for staff to make the transition from its lunch service to dinner. We hoped that we'd get to try the restaurant's award-winning sushi, but would have to settle for the only items available during that time of day -- the happy-hour menu.
