Obsessed! Cheryl Burr, Pastry Chef at Citizen's Band and Pinkie's Bakery on Prime Rib

 

"I’m kind of a prime rib snob. I love it because it’s beefy and tender, and I always get it rare. In life, beef is one of my top five favorite things. I used to work in hotels a lot, so I think that’s where I developed my taste for it. I used to try to sneak in a slice before the prime rib went out onto the buffet.

First Bite: Citizen's Band is All American

With an appealingly ramshackle, if cultivated, sense of funk, there's something very NYC LES about Citizen's Band, the latest SF SoMa restaurant to enter the scene. If ironic trucker hats were still en vogue, this would be the place to wear them.

Americana is the theme: vintage postcards cover the walls; old, metal tractor seats made into stools (something bare legs can't recommend) are parked at a counter overlooking an open kitchen. The whole space opens up to Pinkie's Bakery which opens up to Icon, a small dance club. There's a progressive dinner in here somewhere.
