Behold: A Restaurant Based on a Time Zone

None 6 Photos Central Standard
Time is money.

The time is now.

Time flies.

In due time.

Time... to discuss this restaurant.

Set your watch for Central Standard, a sprawling homage to edible things you typically find in the Central time zone (like gumbo and poutine), opening tonight in the Design District.

Our first restaurant based on a time zone. No idea what took so long.

Inside: it’s all reclaimed wood, brick pillars and brown leather. The black three-sided bar’s pouring 45 drafts, and the kitchen’s pumping out comestibles from Texas, Chicago, Kansas City and other locales firmly designated with a CST.

Given its proximity to the AAC, we could see you coming here before a game. Having a Chicago-style Italian beef sandwich and a cold lager. Or coming here after a game. Having some Texas brisket and an IPA. Or coming here when there is no game. Because, hey: eating/drinking establishment.

And let’s say you’ve got something to celebrate. Your birthday. Promotion. Your first time-zone-themed restaurant... Well, they’ve got a room for that. With a big window looking onto the street and a shelf full of knickknacks.

You break it, you buy it.
