Citrine was born from ingenuity. During the quarantine of 2020 we were faced with the temporary closure of our beautiful culinary classroom, Cooking with Class. No more cooking classes, no more wine dinners, no more catered events.
While our other restaurant concepts were able to transition into take out and delivery, it gave us the idea that we could have a pop up "restaurant within a restaurant" here, utilizing our two kitchens, with take out and delivery only. This gave us a blank canvas to work with.
So we put our heads together to come up with a conceptual menu that they felt was needed here in La Quinta, something we felt wasn't available, and something that played to our strengths as Chefs. With our love for all things Italian and Mediterranean - it was a no brainer.
Our inspiration was Summer in Italy, and our motto was "When life gives you lemons, you make Citrine".
We can't wait for you to try it . .
