Celebrate the LOVE of a Friendship

Put aside the chocolate hearts, teddy bears and roses. Starting in February, at Hotel Valencia Santana Row, it’s all about friendship! In Finland, Valentine’s Day is called Ystävänpäivä which translates into “Friend’s Day” and in some Latin American countries Valentine’s Day is known as “Día del Amor y la Amistad” which means Day of Love and Friendship. What better way to celebrate special bonds than with a weekend getaway with your gal-pals? While our boutique hotel on Santana Row is known for romance, we also offer fun weekend packages to be enjoyed with your girlfriends. What more could a girl ask for than one central location for shopping, dining and catching up while sipping on a hand-crafted cocktail at Vbar?

Our Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Getaway package includes:

-Guest room accommodations for two
-Two tote bags filled with goodies, upon arrival
-Two complimentary adult beverages at the ultra-hip Vbar
-Continental breakfast at Citrus

This exclusive weekend package is available throughout the entire year and we believe that February is a great month to kick off the celebration. Happy Gal-entine’s Day! Call 866-842-0100 for more information or book now.

Citrus delights the taste buds

“We caught up with our Chef de Cuisine, Ocean Orssten, as he was making a unique and special creation prepared for a reception last night – Beef Tataki with raw Quail egg yolk. This bite-size hors d’oeuvre sits on a bed of fried shallots and is topped with smoked sea salt, green habanero, and sesame oil, a true delight to the taste buds! Ocean comments, “I like experimenting with raw ingredients…anything I can do to make a raw ingredient pop really intrigues me.”

Citrus Restaurant offers a classic menu with hearty steaks, fresh seafood and vegetarian plates in an open-air setting, perfect for romantic dinners, group gatherings or business dinners. View the Citrus menu now or make a reservation.

Citrus Celebrates July Culinary Arts Month with Tapas

The origins of Tapas began with a simple piece of bread.  The piece of bread was used to cover glasses of sherry to keep the flies out of the drinks of Spanish bar patrons.  Since it’s meager beginnings,  tapas have evolved to some of the finest and most elaborate dishes served throughout Spain.  Tapas are also part of keeping customers from just filling their stomachs with alcohol.  Spaniards move from bar to bar drinking and eating tapas as part of the social way of life.  Tapas are not meant to be a full meal in Spain.  They are usually eaten between the time of getting off work and sitting down for dinner.  Tapas can be served on a piece of bread (traditional), on a skewer, in a cazuela, on a plate, or even in a glass.   Tapas can include fish, shellfish, chorizo, local vegetables, olives, and the list goes on.

In the Citrus Restaurant kitchen, we have created three dishes to be served tapas “style”.  During the month of July, we will be serving three tapas for $30.  Our dishes will represent California with local sustainable produce and seafood.  The three dishes we have created have origins in Italy, Vietnam, and of course, Spain.  We hope to bring the joy of eating Spanish dishes to a more global landscape. Please join us during Culinary Arts Month and enjoy our creative global tapas dishes.
