Readers' Choice: Le Central

Francophiles have flocked to Z Cuisine from the moment it opened in 2005, comforted by its warm service, seduced by its small, neighborhood feel, and bewitched by the restorative cooking of chef/owner Patrick DuPays, whose French bistro eats continue to make us swoon. Mirroring the boards in Paris, Z's menu is filled with charcuterie, foie gras, hearty beef bourguignon and whatever else DuPays, a resolute advocate of local foods and a farmers' market regular, discovers during the day's foraging. Reservations aren't taken and there's no wait list, but c'est la vie: If the tables are being held hostage at Z Cuisine (DuPays encourages lingering), À Côté, his highly sociable bar next door, has a similar menu.

An average culinary establishment; nice atmosphere, but ordinary food. Not equal to the hype.


funny choice. This is the worse place in the US, and I travel a lot, where they call themself a French restaurant. Typical of a cow town though were pwople would not know the difference between any type of good or bad food. I am French and this place is a disgrace to be call a French restaurant.
