This is a charming restaurant in downtown Highland Park. Excellent French food. Very busy restaurant and not inexpensive. This restaurant is run by Carlos' other half. Good wine list and excellent specials. You won't be disappointed.

Cafe Central serves classic French fare in a warm and inviting setting. The restaurant is billed as the more casual sibling of Carlos', but it's still not cheap. Luckily the food, service and ambiance (as well as great cocktails and wine) combine to make you feel like it's money well spent. The food is really delicious--traditional without being stuffy. Everything I've had to eat here has been very fresh and well-prepared. It's a great place to come with family, since children are welcome. They even have a kids' menu, so you don't have to worry about the kids being forced to choose between escargot and calf's liver (both of which are delicious here, by the way).

The Scene
Located along bustling Central Avenue, Carlos and Debbie Nieto's French diner sees mostly walk-ins who meet spouses after work or stop in before a movie at the nearby cheap-seat theater. On weekdays, patrons range in…
