Had lunch at Providence today. The new room was fine. It, quite frankly, didn't look all that different, and I'm not crazy about the wall covering. Maybe it looks better at night. But what DOES matter is that the food and service is still really first rate. Did the "special June" tasting menu....which is four courses for $80. (though there were three amuse bites....and cookies at the end) I didn't take notes, but each of the amuses was lovely and very tasty. A bite in a spoon....a sashimi taco....a salmon skin cracker with a "dip" of creme fraiche and salmon roe. The first actual course....sashimi with a poured rhubarb consomme. This was amazing....the consomme adding great depth of flavor. Then a scallop on a thai sauce that was incredibly flavorful....topped with a lovely crunchy bit of salad. then a wonderful piece of copper river salmon (sous vide?) with tiny little mushrooms and a couple of other things i don't recall. (i was too busy devouring it to notice) it ended with a chocolate dessert. i'm not much of a dessert person, but my companion is and she loved it. little petit fours to finish. and just before we left..... they gave us a little piece of wrapped (lemon?) cake for the road. a glass of rose champagne.....and a glass of gamay. i'm a very happy camper. may have to go back before the end of the month. by the way, not full for lunch. probably only a third of the tables were occupied....though i think lunch (only on friday) is not their busiest time.
