WASHINGTON, DC. - Downtown brasserie Central Michel Richard is honoring the birthday of its late namesake, with a special celebratory dinner menu, from now through Saturday, March 11th.
The four-course, prix-fixe tribute dinner costs $80/person (with an additional $45 wine pairing option) and boasts several of the signature dishes that Michel Richard passed down to current Executive Chef David Deshaies over the course of his 16-year mentorship.
Patrons will begin the night with Smoked Salmon Terrine with Leeks Tartare and Brioche before digging into a Lobster Ravioli with Citronelle Emulsion second course. The main entree consists of 72-hour Braised Short Ribs with Mushroom-syrah Reduction and dessert comes in the form of Richard’s famed Profiteroles.
