Citronnelle is a chic and intimate little French supper club located right in the heart of Downtown Lancaster City, Pennsylvania. Our dishes are classically prepared yet modern, with global influences from Asia and Africa.
The name “Citronnelle” was conceived after dinner one evening on the tiny yet lovely island of LaDigue in the Seychelles. After our lovingly prepared meal was over, we were served one of the most aromatic teas we had ever tasted. It was fresh and light, with a delicate hint of exotic citrus. This fragrant infusion was called, “citronnelle”, which is French for lemongrass. We learned something new that evening. This versatile stalk is not only native to Asia. It has been cultivated in Africa and Latin America for centuries, for both culinary and medicinal purposes—a truly global herb. It was perfect digestive tea. It was the perfect name.
The personable and knowledgeable team at Citronnelle is committed to creating a stellar dining experience for our guests. Our establishment is currently BYOB, so guests are encouraged to bring in their favorite selections of wines for now. Please join us for some exquisite culinary offerings, a cozy ambiance, some good conversation and perhaps even a little romance with your significant other. We look forward to serving you soon.
