Citrus, at the Hotel Valencia on Houston Street, stepped up to the Restaurant Week plate in fine style on Monday. On the $15 prix fixe menu was a salad of baby greens, tomatoes, pecans and olives that couldn’t have been fresher or more carefully dressed. The Pecan-crusted Chicken entrée, on mashed potatoes was full of crunch and good, nutty flavor. It said a lot for this Texas-style preparation of chicken-fried chicken.
Citrus brought the meal to a happy conclusion with a trio of citrus and tropical sorbets that set the taste buds tingling.
This meal is featured throughout Restaurant Week for $15; a $35 per person prix fixe dinner is also on the menu.
