When you come to Central 214, leave your diet at the door.
This is, after all, the place you come to indulge in delightfully sinful dishes like chicken-fried Kobe steak and mac-and-cheese made with smoked gouda and Serrano ham, all masterminded by Blythe Beck, the self-proclaimed “naughty chef” because she never skimps on flavor, or the calories. She’s lightening it up a bit this summer with options like fresh diver scallops, but don’t worry, she’s still keeping it naughty with a side of corn-bacon succotash and crispy fried barbecue onions. You can pamper that palate out on the recently refurbished patio, which includes a new fireplace — all just in time for the Sunday night outdoor movie series, which fires up in June.

GREENVILLE & VANDERBILT

LEWIS & LIVE OAK 214.826.0968
3 Bailey’s Prime Plus
If the 14 oz prime strip isn’t enough, finish with the “Bailey’s Boozie”: a brownie topped with Irish cream liqueur ice cream, homemade hot fudge, roasted almonds, brandied cherries, whipped cream and Heath bar chunks.
