THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Central Michel Richard Restaurant Review

: Central is proof that at least one big-name chef is not afraid to open a 24-hour eatery on the Vegas Strip. Michel Richard gained notoriety with his well-situated Central in D.C., and his Vegas version is also located in prime real estate, the main lobby of Caesars Palace. A lively atmosphere prevails, with seating for more than 300 and opportunities for people-watching available in the bar, with a view of the lobby, and an outdoor patio area overlooking the entryway into Caesars. Floor-to-ceiling wine racks display bottles from France, Spain, Italy and California; stacks of colossal white plates that mirror the serving dishes add to the décor. The American breakfast is a feast --- two eggs any style, sausage, bacon, ham, mini pancakes, house potatoes and coffee or tea. For a lunch or dinner starter, we suggest the thinly sliced Asian style tuna carpaccio or tartare of filet mignon. Crowd favorites are the burgers, with versions of Angus beef, chicken and ahi. A side of mac ‘n’ cheese made with American, cheddar and Gruyère is a meal in itself. Save room for the chocolate bar --- a wafer topped with mousse, dark and white chocolate pearls and praline sauce.
