Owned by attorney Dennis Archer Jr., developer Christopher Brochert and restaurant industry veteran Ken Karam, Central is designed to be an all-occasion venue that will appeal to a wide range of guests.

Executive chef Christina Stanco's menus are at once stylish and approachable, ranging from classic burgers and sandwiches to updated salads such as baby kale with roasted red pepper, farro, gruyere and prosciutto, and entrees such as buttermilk-fried quail with creamed corn gratin and lavender honey.

Prices are mid-range for a restaurant with a chef-driven menu in a prime downtown location; the First National Bank is at 660 Woodward and is owned and managed by Bedrock Real Estate Services.
