Bistro Citron has the look of a classic Paris bistro and the food to match, with the bonus of a view of the Roslyn Duck Pond.

The menu at Bistro Citron, waiting at the table wrapped around your napkin, offers all the traditional bistro dishes. Hors d’oeuvres include escargots a la Bourguignonne (baked snails with garlic herb butter), salade Nicoise (tuna, olives, tomatoes, string beans, onions, potatoes and sliced eggs and lettuce) and the quintessential French onion soup, with a thick cover of bubbling cheese. The steak tartare, raw ground steak seasoned with shallots, horseradish, capers, brandy and various condiments is a special treat. There are several mussels dishes with lots of sauce for dipping the delicious crusty bread. The popular steak frites (grilled steak served with fries), leads off the entrée menu, plus dishes such as rack of lamb, chicken in a Chardonnay sauce and pan roasted striped bass over ratatouille.

Each night of the week features a classic dish. On Tuesday it’s canard a l’orange, on Thursday coq au vin and braised short ribs are served on Saturday.

Bistro Citron is perhaps my favorite restaurant, for its cozy ambiance, friendly, competent service and food. Their ravioli special (which changes daily) is always a treat. Everything I've tasted from the menu, from bread to dessert, has been excellent. There is an tasty bar menu and music on the weekend which makes it an excellent place to have a bite before or after seeing a movie down the block.
