Show 572, April 6, 2024: Citrus City Grille, Orange, with Proprietor Charlie Cosmas Part One

Charlie Cosmas of Citrus City Grille

“In mid-2022 Citrus City Grille transitioned to new ownership for the longtime Orange based restaurant. Since first opening in 1996, Citrus City Grille quickly became an iconic part of the Old Towne Orange aesthetic, serving up incredible contemporary American cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean. New owner and restaurant industry veteran Charlie Cosmas alongside his family have been longtime patrons of Citrus City Grille, and as of July 2022 took over day to day operations. Former owner Steve Tsirtsis and Charlie Cosmas happen to share a greek heritage, which has been a hugely influential part of the Citrus City Grille menu and ethos.”

“As always, Citrus City Grille showcases the freshest seafood, steaks, pastas, and more. Other recent additions to their menu include the Citrus City Caprese, the elevated CCB Burger on a brioche bun, Chicken Caesar Wrap, Tomahawk Chicken, and Citrus City Meatloaf. Since opening in 1996, CCG has become an iconic part of the central Orange aesthetic, serving up incredible, fresh Californian cuisine with a Mediterranean flair.”

“Since the beginning Citrus City Grille has served up modern American cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean and includes a robust menu of sandwiches, steaks, salads, tacos, soups, cocktails, wines and more. They are known for dishes such as their signature Chilean sea bass and stuffed chicken breast, and also offer a popular dessert menu, breakfast served on Saturday and a wildly popular brunch hosted every Sunday. Daily lunch offerings include soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas and freshly caught fish.”
