Citizen Cake Should Be Opening on Fillmore This Saturday

Table of Contents

Elizabeth Falkner, Amy Glaze, and crew are gearing up for the opening of ~CITIZEN CAKE~ on Fillmore, currently aiming toward this Saturday November 13th. Lunch will be served from 11am-2:30pm, with dishes like clam chowder ($10) with white wine, leeks, potatoes, lardon, and cream; frisée-lardon salad ($12), with slow-poached egg, radish, tarragon, grain mustard vinaigrette, and croutons; heirloom chicories salad ($9), dates, red onion, pecans, blue cheese, and honey vinaigrette; sandwiches like an open-face fried chicken Cobb sandwich ($12), bacon, egg, avocado, and tomato vinaigrette; falafel ($9), smoked eggplant, beet raita, harissa, cucumber, tahini, and pita pillows; and roast beef sandwich au jus ($11), caramelized onion-horseradish aioli, shredded carrot, and celery. There will also be four pizzas ($11-$15): a margherita with housemade mozzarella; fennel sausage, tomato sauce, red onion, and pine nuts; pesto, bacon, chèvre, walnuts, and arugula; and fall mushrooms, truffle soubise, thyme, hazelnuts, and sage.

During the snack time (from 3pm-5pm), there are arepas with smoked trout, ancho crema, cucumber, and pepitas ($6); chopped liver toast ($7); and other snacks.

Dinner will be served from 5:30pm-10pm, with some of the same starters as lunch, like beet salad with mache, grilled beef heart, horseradish, and crème fraîche ($11), plus hiramasa crudo ($15), radish, persimmon, carrot, avocado, jalapeño, and ponzu. There will also be the pizzas, and main dishes include dorade royal ($21), caramelized cauliflower, golden raisins, pancetta, lemon, caper berries, and brown butter; poussin ($24), mushroom and wild mushroom stuffing, parsnips, Brussels sprout leaves, cranberry-pear sauce, and sherry jus; rigatoni carbonara ($16), pancetta, and pecorino Romano; Kobe beef cheek stroganoff ($19), egg noodles, Thumbelina carrots, Tokyo turnips, and chanterelles; and oat groats ($16), butternut squash, collard greens, pickled quince, and pine nuts.

Rigatoni carbonara. Cue sound of stomach grumbling. And I can’t wait to see the selection of pastries and sweets (which will be baked at Orson), available at 10am.
