On 15 consecutive nights at the bar, Central Michel Richard's chef de cuisine Arthur Cavaliere gives away free samples of a different new dish each day, eliciting commentary and critique on flavor, presentation, marketability and value. Those dishes getting the highest totals will help shape a new 2011 tapas menu for one of D.C.'s finest restaurants. And all comment cards will be entered into a drawing for a free dinner for two. Included among the taste test: Tuna Nicoise deviled eggs, chili and cheese steak fries, mini lobster rolls with tarragon mayonnaise, French onion soup with dumplings and BBQ spare ribs with cole slaw sauce. Sommelier David Hale will offer specially priced drinks to pair with each sample. Every night until Dec. 21, at 9:30 p.m. Central Michel Richard, 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.
