Winterlicious at The Citizen

Just a quick post today to let you know that Winterlicious at The Citizen was a treat.

The service was good, the space hip, but most importantly the food was very tasty. I asked our server for his recommendations on best bets for the three-course prix fixe meal, and he suggested the salt cod cakes with frisee for a starter, the half cornish hen with olive, lemon and white bean cassoulet for the main, and the warm apple crumble with creme Anglaise for dessert.

I went with all three of his selections, topped off with a glass of Argentinian malbec, and it didn't disappoint.

My only criticism would be the entrance - the single set of double doors offers no protection for diners in the front part of the restaurant from the cold gusts that sweep in every time the doors open. I have to think that even putting up a curtain or something would help guard against the blasts of cold. Just this writer's humble suggestion.

All in all though, a satisfying meal. I'd like to see how they fare on a regular night.
