Our group of 4 adults made an impromptu visit on a Sunday afternoon . The lunch specials (now $14.00) were quite good. We had Croque Madame, Epic BLT, crepe, and mussels. Nice Parisian ambiance and attentive and friendly staff.

Walked across Central Park after going to the Met and stumbled upon Citron. The lunch specials are a nice more-affordable option. They were delicious and the service was good too. The best part was the freshness of their baguettes. They made very good sandwiches that...More

A wonderful full-bistro menu with interesting specials daily. The moules-frites are the best in the City. Comfortable seating and friendly attentive service.

Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
