Going to Providence

I am going to Providence this weekend for my birthday. Don't think the budget will support the chefs tasting menu, so I would like to try the fixed tasting menu. However I recently decided no more beef/veal. I saw that movie Fast Food Nation. Will they accomodate that request on the fixed tasting menu? Or do I have to go with ala carte? I know you guys know!

  1. Providence has been more than accommodating on a regular basis when it comes to food requests. Just call them and make arrangements a couple of days in advance. I have friends that are vegetarians and it's never a problem. Besides their Fish dishes are our favorites anyway.

    1. Have a wonderful birthday meal. I did this for my birthday last year and it was extremely memorable. We did the fixed menu and they were very accomodating to my husband's request to not want to eat any raw fish. I don't remember there being too many courses that had beef/veal, Russ is right, fish is what they do best

      1. Congrats on eliminating beef/veal from your diet! Providence is the best food I've come across in LA. My suggestion is to eat lightly until dinner. My system is not use to food that rich and I couldn't sleep that night and I felt a food hangover the next day.

        The two amuse-bouche were very fanciful and scrumptious but the hillbilly in thought the portions of the rest of the courses would be minuscule. So I chowed down on bread and butter. Big mistake!

        Take your time and savor. Happy Birthday!

        1. Cool, sounds like it won't be a problem. I picked it becuase they are known for their fish/seafood. You guys are all great, and thank you for the Birthday Wishes!!!!
