Citron Restaurant Review: Costa Rican-born Warren Cordoba has become a celebrity chef around town since his arrival at Citron. Lunch and dinner features both contemporary small shareable plates and main courses. The simple and simply tasty fig and prosciutto salad makes an excellent starter, with its fresh figs and prosciutto di Parma tossed with baby wild arugula and shaved Parmesan, and drizzled with a roasted garlic Dijon vinaigrette. Crab cakes with lemon aïoli have a light and flavorful zest without overpowering the palate, while the naan flatbread is an innovative dish with marinated tomatoes, Asiago and burrata cheeses, prosciutto and wild arugula. For dinner, the tamarind-glazed prawns taste slightly exotic, as does the roasted Jidori chicken with sweet corn, cilantro, red onion and an avocado relish. The wine list is decent, but it's really the cocktails that make Citron a relaxing, on-the-rocks restaurant. The setting, minimalist indoors and al fresco poolside, seems right out of Central Casting, where 007 and his Bond girls might be found lounging about.
