As we’ve previously reported, Executive Chef Thomas McNaughton and Chef de Cuisine Michael Gaines will be focusing on Northern California regional cuisine.
The space, which will include a courtyard, includes room to seat 53 (36 in the dining room, 12 at the restaurant’s communal table and 5 at the bar). Price points will be between $13-16 for first and second courses, $24-27 for mains and $79 for the tasting menu.
The interior was designed by Paxton Gate and the kitchen by Alec Bauer. There’s still no word yet on when Salumeria, the adjacent casual dining spot, will be opening but it will most likely be before the end of the month.
Central Kitchen is located at 782 Florida Street and will be open daily from 5:30-11 p.m.
