Providence - A fancy dinner at a fancy place

One of the best restaurants in Los Angeles, curating an experience well worth the luxurious price tag. Reservations are required, and easily acquired online. Providence is well known for their seafood, but caters to vegetarians as well. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and seated in enormous plush chairs at a spacious table. The ambiance is and simple and sophisticated, with a polished oceanic color scheme and romantic lighting. We ordered cocktails while perusing the tasting menu options, both of which were fantastic. The first course, an artful display of crudités with a rich miso dipping sauce, was the perfect introduction. The next was a richly spiced tomato soup, followed by a tartlet filled with a roasted tomato filling. My vegetarian counterpart to the Yellowtail was a lovely snap pea salad in light citrusy dressing. The black truffles atop grilled lettuce component of my main was easily one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. The clear winner was the Buddha's Hand fruit, which is served with a prosecco sorbet. Sweet and tangy, perfectly complimented by the crisp fruity wine. The tasting menu was concluded with French caramel macarons, chocolate truffles, and fine Italian espresso. We were presented with our check, and a bag of chocolate chip muffins to take home for breakfast the next day.
