Things to Do

Tonight: Culinary class and dinner at Le Central

Le Central bills itself as the "affordable French restaurant." While some might find that description terribly bourgeois, we dare you to find any other spot in town that offers a three-course culinary lesson and meal for a mere $26.

Tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Le Central, 112 East Eighth Avenue, you can learn to create this meal -- and then enjoy it for yourself:

Hors d'ouevre: Assiette Mediterranene -- eggplant caviar, hummus, muhammara and cucumber-mint salad.

Le Plat Principal: Poulet aux herbes -- a roasted, salted and herb-crusted whole (free-range) chicken served over diced carrots, celery and onions.

Le Dessert: A trio of macaroons -- chocolate, raspberry and lemon.

Reservations are required for the class/dinner; sign up by calling 303-863-8094.
