Citizen Public Market
Apparently Citizen Public Market got a lot of hype for the upcoming Superbowl LVI. Made two stops-- Wednesday night wasn't too crowded, Go Go Bird's Japanese fried chicken is pretty legit. Coleslaw is good too, the dumplings are smallish but pretty decent, as expected given previous experience with Go Go Gyoza. However the biscuit was pretty bad, not sure why. The Jolly Oyster isn't cheap, but service was quick and fresh enough. Can't expect too much from the selection given the size of their location.
Second visit was Friday night, waaaaaay busier and definitely more fashionable-- not so much a huge difference, more that you noticed people making the effort. Bang Bang Noodles is more for show than anything, although the handmade noodles do turn out nicely. Sadly the beef and the veggies were rather ordinary at best, so the overall verdict was just average, although to their credit they had sold out just past 9pm.
