The Los Angeles Times Rates Providence #1 Restaurant for Fourth Year Running

For an unprecedented 4 years in a row, Providence was rated the #1 restaurant by The Los Angeles Times’ Pulitzer Prize winning restaurant critic, Jonathan Gold.  “Michael Cimarusti still operates within the context of a modernist seafood chef who embraces flavors from across the globe, but the fish he uses is increasingly local and sustainable”, writes Gold in his list “Jonathan Gold’s 101 Best Restaurants”. See our Chef de Cuisine, Tristan Aitchison, prepare our signature dish, “The Ugly Bunch”, in the video link below:

Jonathan Gold on Providence’s most iconic dish, ironically called the Ugly Bunch

At Providence, chef Michael Cimarusti makes a dish called the Ugly Bunch, an arrangement of uni, abalone and geoduck, low-on-the-food-chain creatures whose use illustrates the importance of sustainability. It’s an incredibly delicious manifesto served on a bed of crème fraiche panna cotta.
