January 2018 Featured Member: Citizen

Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, Citizen is a social dining experience featuring a New American menu created by Chef Seth Greenburg, highlighting the global flavors of LA. Citizen’s bar program draws inspiration from iconic 1960s Americana and features transportive cocktails and irreverent straight forward drinks. The interior of the restaurant hints at the rebellious style and glamour of 1960s Beverly Hills. As the former location of celebrity tailor Jack Taylor, the restaurant echoes a bespoke sense of  quality that feels suited to every guest. Adding to the atmosphere is a large open-air lounge and fire pit that plays host to the evening’s cocktail party, which starts early and goes all night long.

A Los Angeles native, Chef Seth Greenburg’s approach to Citizen’s menu is deeply rooted in the global flavors of the city. Seth brings a wealth of experience to Citizen having worked in restaurants such as L’Orangerie in Los Angeles and Cuisine Francais in Chicago, training under his mentor Michelin starred chef Gilles Epié. Greenburg also served as opening Executive Chef at the Dakota Restaurant in the Roosevelt Hotel before becoming Executive Chef at The Penthouse in Santa Monica for a number of years.
