A father-and-son team has purchased Citizens Restaurant, 221 Broad St. in Nevada City, from Dewayne and Denise Yeager, and will take over the establishment Thursday. The Yeagers, who bought the restaurant in 2002, have decided to return to Washington state.
The new owners are Barry Collins and his son Clay. Barry Collins is providing the financial backing for the venture while Clay Collins, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone who has worked at several restaurants, will run the business.
The menu will be updated to offer unique pizzas, original pasta dishes, sandwiches and hand-tossed salads, and the restaurant will be remodeled next winter, according to the Collinses.
