Citron Bistro brings fun dining and super ambiance to the neighborhood in the south Denver area. As you enter the free-standing building, casual decor and comfort immediately make you feel welcome. The space is large but divided into small rooms, with a fireplace and big chairs in the lounge, an open kitchen, and bar area in front. Several areas of dining throughout offer a more intimate setting with wood floors, brick, warm colors, and huge windows to set the scene. Start with delicious homemade bread served with pesto olive oil as you select from several specialty drinks and wine.
Small plates include coconut shrimp, mussels fra diavolo, fried calamari, and spicy hummus. avocado fries with chipotle aioli dipping sauce, and oven roasted feta with tomatoes, olives, and pita are musts. Entrees offer selections for every taste. For lighter fare choose adobe grilled chicken salad, tenderloin gorgonzola salad, a divine ciabatta chicken club with herb aioli . For the meat lover try the famous Bistro burger, wagyu or lamb sliders. If you are in the mood for pasta try tequila chicken pasta, cioppino or chicken piccata. 12-hour braised lamb shank, a pork chop, ruby red trout, Atlantic salmon, seabass, and our monthly specials bring more options.
Nice sides complement the dishes, and portions are very generous. End with decadent desserts of berry cobbler, creme brulee Napoleon, cheesecake or Southwest favorites. The wine list is excellent with many choices by the glass, service is very friendly and competent, and prices are affordable. Billed as serious food with casual attitude, brothers George and Tom have created a spot that is a treat for all.
