More About the Chef: Zachary Geerson
Get a taste of Citizen Kitchen's seasonally-inspired, well crafted plates and beverages, and you'll wonder why you didn't try it sooner. Start with a craft cocktail, a few small plates like Arugula Soup or Beef Tartare, and then move on to what they call "The In-Betweens" and more. Roast Jidori Chicken, Poached Arctic Char, and a lengthy selection from the "Things That Graze" list will have you struggling to decide on what to order. Plus you can't skip their newest "From the Brick Oven" selection - unexpected artisanal style pizzas and such just took Citizen Kitchen's selection to the next level.
"The food is unique in a way that is not always focused on a specific flavor profile... but sometimes an emotion or reaction." - Executive Chef Geerson
