Has Central lost its touch?

We have long considered Michel Richard's Central to be one of the best restaurants in D.C.

However, recently, Michel Richard opened a new restaurant in the Ritz Carlton in Tyson's Corner called Michel.

Has his attention be turned elsewhere?

A recent visit to Central seemed like an entirely different restaurant.  The hostess didn't even say hello when we walked in the door and hovered at the podium.

Once we sat down, the service was mediocre at best.  The fried chicken, usually one of their best dishes, was dry and had a rubbery texture.  The french fries were soggy.  The wine came warm.

Yes, our expectations were very high.  But this evening did not even come close.  Hopefully it was a one-time thing. 

Has anyone else has similar experiences?  Let us know in the comments section.
