I was treated to a wonderful Mother's Day indulgence at Providence last night. The food was really exceptional and everyone was so genuinely friendly even though we had our two small children ages 7 & 3. They were really accomodating and I didn't have that anxious feeling I sometimes get when dining out with my children (I know a lot of you are thinking "righfully so" but my kids have been dining out since birth and they understand the code of behavior we expect from them). We had the 5-course tasting menu and every dish was a standout (they made a delicious mac-n-cheese for the kids). The sweetbreads with cipollini onion was so good, I can't stop thinking about it. I really adored the softshell crab too now that it is coming into season. They even gave me and the kids a gift box of home-made caramels at the end of the evening.My hubbie gets big points.
