Central Bistro & Bar Restaurant Review

: The mesmerizing views of the city skyline in the distance are just one of the many attributes of this lively neighborhood bistro in Lower Highland, where urban sleek meets refined rusticity. The artistic, whimsical setting flanked by an open kitchen --- illuminated by a glowing cherry red sign that spells "HOT" --- features a menu that favors seasonal ingredients and bold flavor combinations, evident in the charred octopus brightened with carrot harissa and a candied lemon-olive salad. A duo of pork --- tenderloin and jagerwurst sausage --- plated with barley risotto, watercress and Colorado peaches, shines, too. And desserts, such as the Nutella waffle paired with pretzel ice cream and butterscotch bananas, are stamped with savvy. Service, like the food, is exuberant and on-point, and the whole experience is elevated by an eclectic wine list and a come-hither cocktail roster that includes both the classics and modern revelations.
