Pecan-crusted Fried Chicken is the featured main lunch dish at Citrus
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.
