Lunch at Providence Restaurant, 5955 Melrose Avenue
He was also a contestant on Top Chef Masters.
Then our appetisers. I chose Josephines Clam Fritters (Yuzu Kosho Mayonnaise) - not sure why as I really don't like clams. But it was actually a cold wet day so I felt like something warm and the choices were limited. Bit of a mistake, as I really am not a fan of anything deep fried - although the mayonnaise was fabulous. Wish I'd had the Kampachi.
We then ordered dessert. Chocolate Raspberry Ganache (Ginger Meringue, Graham Cracker Ice Cream). Very pretty, and super rich - the meringues were minute. Still don't know what a Graham Cracker is.
Very good restaurant, great food, really pleasant professional service and the best thing? It was a thank you gift from our daughter and son in law.
And.....no sign of camera!!!
