Egg Yolk shaped Screwdriver shot and Mojito Ice Cube

Providence is the King of all LA restaurants. It has been #1 for I don’t know how many years.

I always knew coming here would be a pricy affair but eventually this dangling, diamond-tipped carrot had to be mine!

Who needs to buy groceries or gas when you can have a night out in food heaven?

(If this doesn’t make up for the Chef Boyardee post below, nothing will!)

There wasn’t a single fault I can find at Providence. Trust me, I tried.

If I had to pick something, the decor was a bit lacking. When you’re spending this kind of money, you wish there was more to stare at. Our own personal Picasso would have been nice.

But screw that, the fish was PERFECTLY cooked, the flavors were fun and inventive and the service was so friendly, you almost forget you’re dining at a place where you’ll spend that little sum you were saving…for a downpayment on a house!

Let the feasting begin:

Box of Delights! Crispy Salmon Skin, Tarts filled with Mozarella topped with Tomato Compote, Smoked Trout Tart

Kanpachi, Soba crispies

Kanpachi Sashimi, Soba Crispies

Scallop, Baby Beet, Almonds, Nori

Seared Halibut, Potatoes, Scallion Oil, Chili Paste

Veal Tenderloin, Mushrooms, Grapes. To quote my friend on Veal: "Mmm...I can just taste the suffering"

Burrata Ice Cream, Nectarines, other crap. That Burrata...SO GOOD!
