Restaurant Details

From the restaurant's logo through its desserts, Citizens Band is clearly the work of a California-trained, technique-curious cook who loves making Any Highway USA road food. Chef-owner Chris Beerman's lo-fi space ably translates the Americana of Bruce Springsteen, Iron & Wine, and Ratt into interior design. And while his food can be uneven in its execution - please don't get the mac and cheese - it evidences wit and creativity. He grills a double-cut pork chop and perches its rib bone, sweetly braised, alongside. He braises a square of bacon and tops it with a slow-cooked, deep-fried whole egg that melts as soon as you slice into it. The roast tomatoes on his Kobe burger serve as both fixins and ketchup. And when it comes to desserts, courtesy of the attached Pinkie's Bakery, pastry chef Cheryl Burr shows she believes in the sanctity of the all-American pie.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
