Welcome to Citizen

Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, Citizen is a social dining experience featuring a New American menu with a Southern accent, from Chef Scott Howard. Seasonal dishes are meant to be shared and the menu encourages guests to craft their own experience.  Josh Goldman’s bar program draws inspiration from iconic 1960s Americana and features transportive tiki cocktails and irreverent straightforward 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.

They say if  you spend enough time in a particular restaurant or bar, you become a citizen there. We look forward to welcoming you.

Meet Chef Scott Howard

Born and raised on a 164-acre farm in North Carolina, Chef Scott Howard’s approach toward locally sourced ingredients and love of cooking took hold at an early age. Following his passion, Scott relocated to Miami where he was mentored by Chef Norman Van Aken at Amano, which was voted by The New York Times’ Gael Green as one of the Top 50 Restaurants in the United States.

Afterwards, Chef Howard decided to move to to Northern California where he opened his first restaurant in 2001, Fork, in San Anselmo. Fork garnered Howard three stars in the San Francisco Chronicle, a 27 rating in Zagat, and was listed in the Top 100 Restaurants in the Chronicle.

Howard’s next venture was an upscale casual restaurant in Marin County, Brick & Bottle. In addition to being a popular local destination, accolades included a Michelin Bib Gourmand award and a listing in Food & Wine magazine’s “Best Suburban Restaurants.”

In 2015, Scott moved to Southern California with his wife and two daughters. Renowned San Francisco Chronicle’s restaurant critic Michael Bauer has said of Chef Howard’s food that Scott is, “known for innovative flavors and artful presentations that make the most of local seasonal ingredients.” Howard plans on bringing that same sensibility to his sharable eclectic American menu at Citizen.
