Time Out says

When Josiah Citrin reimagined his stalwart tasting-menu concept, the menu wasn't the only thing that changed. By carving out a smaller corner of his Mélisse space for a more intimate experience, he created room for Citrin: an all-new and more casual restaurant. This is the kind of place with comforting but wholly gourmet takes on classics we could eat every night: pitch-perfect roast chicken coated in garlic and breadcrumbs; refreshing oysters under sorrel and cucumber; and, of course, Josiah Citrin's cult-classic lobster bolognese under truffle foam, which can also be found at the bar during happy hour (note: now one of the best happy hours on the Westside).
