Re-opened with the same name in the summer of 2016 under new owners Danny Kerr and Tricia Cox.
Danny and Tricia are committed to providing the same level of high quality food and service that previous owner Michael D’Angelo has created in over 15 years in building Citricos. As of this writing, early indications are that they are on the path to a successful transition.
Danny and Tricia are not newcomers to the restaurant industry where they collectively bring with them over 40 years experience in the restaurant business.
Citricos is small and cozy. Tables, though spaced close together, are attractively set with white linen.
The seasonally changing menu is created from scratch using fresh farm to table ingredients.
On Tuesdays & Wednesdays, between 5pm until 8pm they serve a reasonably priced "Tour of Italy" Prixe Fixe, 5 course menu.
Citricos is open five days/week, Monday – Thursday: 5 - 9pm, Friday & Saturday: 5 - 10pm
