Providence in Pictures

Ran out of uni tonight so they made the ugly bunch with king crab and we asked for the soft scrambled eggs with white truffles.

A perfect evening.

  1. I really do love this restaurant. I have to get there during the holidays. Thanks for reminding me it's truffle season!

    1. Very nice Porthos.

      Truffle is on the smallish side no? :P

      1. Oops. Forgot egg with truffles.

              To me the fish and the pasta look great. Others mushy red medicinal. But I know you love that. Nice vino.

                If you consider abalone and geoduck "mushy"'s really your loss for missing out on the Ugly Bunch ;-(

                1. re: Porthos

                  But in some white stuff? I do like abalone and geoduck

                  1. re: jessejames

                    It's a thin layer of smoked panna cotta. Really adds to the dish.

              2. re: Porthos

                Can I just order that egg with white truffles ????

                Are they still doling that good shit out ???????

            1. Leflaive and Providence are a nice match.
              What's the third wine from the left in your photo?

                John, as dumb luck would have it and thanks to the sommelier's amazing thoughtfulness he gave us pours of (left to right):

                1961 DRC Echezeaux, 1953 Mouton, 1975 d'Yquem, 2010 Leroy Corton, 2010 Chave Hermitage blanc, 2006 Pierre Morey Meursault Charmes, 2004 Leflaive Pucelles.

                I brought the Leflaive and bought the Pierre Morey. The others were from a party in the private room.

                Also walked away with some 2010 Dujac Bonnes Mares that was on the list for much less than current retail.

                  1. re: Porthos

                    How much did those 1950s and 70s pours add to the tab and how much was the rest of the fiscal damages for the meal ???????
