Citrin Restaurant Review:

Chef Josiah Citrin's Citrin occupies part of the previous incarnation of Mélisse, one of GAYOT's TOP 40 Restaurants in the U.S. (You can still enjoy this fine-dining experience in a scaled-down space that used to be the patio.)

The setting is inviting, elegant, relaxed yet still refined. You will enjoy Citrin’s upscale yet casual California fare either at the white marbletop bar or at the dark wood tables. The booths are still there from Mélisse 1.0, but the décor is completely different.
