Eat SF : Jumping on the Citizen’s Band Wagon

We gave up on waiting for pizza in North Beach and hopped into a cab for Citizen’s Band in SOMA. There was a short wait, which we took to a bar down the street, but it’s understandable why. The fancy American eats served are delicious. Two appetizers were ordered.

Citizen's Band
Mac and Cheese with Fried Onion on top, Smithfield ham on the side

Citizen's Band
Shrimp and Grits with Pickled Okra and Fried Romano Beans

My main course: Baked Trout over a Calamari Salad. On top of my delectable dish, I tried a little bit of what everyone else ordered too.

Pork Chop and Potatoes

Gotta love food-loving friends. You can always count on them to share their favorite restaurants. Plus, you can take pictures of the food, theirs included. I hadn’t even heard of the restaurant until then [despite all the press in the last month or so], and I’m definitely heading back!

    • I definitely have a soft spot for Shrimp and Grits. There’s a restaurant called Front Porch that also has them. SO GOOD.

  • Sweet Jesus! I must go there. I would have ordered exactly as you did!

        I was going to ask if we could make a provisional dinner date for if I’m ever in SF, or you’re ever in the same part of Scotland as me, but I think I already know the answer now!!

        • The answer is yes, of course, but you’ll have to tell me more about yourself, aside from the little I know thru your comments. :-) And of Scotland because I’ll be sure to make a visit at some point.

    • You still had a few bites to try! :) We have to go back some time.

  • Oh goodness… the fried chicken! The grits! Okay, really everything looks amazing. I think my husband would think he had gone to heaven if he was served mac and cheese topped with onion rings and surrounded by ham :).

    • It is a heart attack on a plate. ;) I try to balance it off by eating healthier the rest of the time.

    • Yeah, I just wish I could take better food photos without a fancy camera or sitting over my food for too long. :P

  • Another great set of pics. Looks amazing.
