What should I order at Providence?
Going tonight; not going to order any of the tasting menus. Thanks.
I would have recommended the tasting menu. I think that at a place like Providence you should really aim to try as many things as possible. I honestly couldnt recommend any one dish as they are all pretty amazing.
Definitely the tasting menu.
I have done the chef's which was incredible and took a bit over 4 hours.
Recently I returned and did 5 courses, and supplemented the big eye tuna tartar and the truffle risotto.
Both incredible meals.
Definitely do one of the tastings.
We did the full tasting menu of 9 courses (paced @ 2 hours) and I was stuffed by the 7th course--and I was careful to just *taste* the bread and didn't have lunch that day. Each of the courses measure approximately 1/4 cup of food...with a couple dishes measuring a max of 1/2 cup.
