Citron Bistro a 5280 Denver Restaurant Week Night on the Town

Citron Bistro is a Greek inspired Restaurant in South Denver

Executive Chef Andy Martinez in the kitchen creating magic for your palette with his unique take on traditional and Greek cuisine.

Signature Dessert Creme Brulee Napoleon

Restauranteurs George Karas and Tom Karantounis took the building that formerly housed Marie Calendars and created a beautiful relaxing oasis  of a mix of rustic brick, hardwood floors and modern colors  for a dining atmosphere to enjoy world foods with Mediterranean, Southwestern and American influences,  a glass of wine, or  share their amazing signature dessert, a Creme Brulee’ Napoleon.

Their 5280 menu was quite varied and the quantity of food you received was outstanding.
