In the latest Baltimore-area restaurant celeb sighting, Howard Stern brunched at Baltimore County eatery Citron this past weekend.
The restaurant, which sits at the foot of a flooded quarry in Pikesville, posted a pair of photos (with permission, management noted) last night of a grizzled-looking Stern standing outside Citron with co-owners Susan and Charles Levine. The photos prompted an interrogation from locals on Facebook: What was he doing here? What did he eat? “Why didn’t you let us know that he was going to be there today?”
These important questions remain unanswered. To the second one, the restaurant responded with rhyme—”We don’t like to brag, we don’t like to boast, but cool Howard Stern had hot buttered toast!!!”—but clarified that that’s not really what he ordered, and that they wouldn’t be sharing.
“For a man who claims to have a face for radio (we disagree) you sure had a heart of gold for CITRON today,” the owners wrote in the post. “THANKS for stopping by see you again soon.”

Stern, who became a shock jock radio icon in the 1980s and ’90s with his brash, keep-it-real demeanor and oft-lewd programming, has had his own show with Sirius XM for 13 years. He’s now in year three of a five-year contract extension.
