I was sorry to learn that Elizabeth Falkner is closing ~CITIZEN CAKE~ on Fillmore at the end of the year, as reported in the Inside Scoop. The restaurant went through a reconcepting a few months ago, and even though it has been busy, she reportedly has not been able to make up for the rough financial start when construction delayed the restaurant’s opening for nine months. Citizen Cake is open for limited hours until it closes at the end of the month: Tue-Thu 11am-5pm and Fri-Sat 11am-10pm. Orson, currently a private event space, is also on the market.
In the good news department, Falkner has been doing very well on The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs, and this Sunday is the final challenge: she’s up against chef Jeff Zakarian. Best of luck, Elizabeth! Ninja chef is in the house.
Come by Orson on Sunday December 18th at 2pm for brunch and watch a special screening of the seventh episode on Orson’s digital wall. Tickets are $40 in advance and can be purchased here or $45 at the door.
