I noticed on Providence's website, under Upcoming Events, that, to celebrate their seven years in operation, their five-course menu will only be $75 ($120 with wine pairing) in the month of June. This looks to be a $25 discount from the normal dinner pricing.
Has anyone had the five-course menu recently, preferably this month, and can hopefully compare it to other five-course menus from the past? I'd like to think that offering this discount as a gesture of appreciation to their customers would mean that the menus wouldn't be change in terms of quality/quantity just to account for the lower cost, but I wouldn't blame them for adjusting the menu so they're not actually losing money on these meals.
I realize their prix-fixe menus change all the time (daily?), so it's likely hard to do an apples-to-oranges comparison, but I'm just curious.
Also, has anyone had the five-course menu both at lunch (currently only on Fridays) and dinner, to compare the quality/quantity of the two? The June anniversary discount is only $5 compared to the the regular lunch pricing; anyone know if a someone could get the five-course dinner menu at lunch normally, much less at the $75 pricing?
