The restaurant, helmed by Cimarusti and his partner, Donato Poto, was reimagined by Tamara Kaye-Honey of House of Honey as "a luxe vision of our oceans as seen through the lens of an Art Deco enthusiast."
Providence also has switched to a tasting menu-focused format with three options: a menu of signature dishes, a market menu or the chef's menu. Diners also have the option of choosing a few dishes rather than a full tasting menu.
"In our experience, a majority of our guests gravitate toward our tasting menus, so to focus our efforts on these three options will help to ensure the best experience possible," Cimarusti said in a statement. "What guides us ... is a reverence for wild-caught, sustainable products .... Our objective is to forward the notion that eating sustainably harvested, wild-caught fish is in our society's collective best interest."
In the dining room is custom damask wallpaper painted in rose, gold, pearl and blue that lines the banquettes; dark blue velvet chairs; sconces hung in chained steel; driftwood chandeliers; and dark blue carpeting. And Providence's patio, an extension of the dining room, is now enclosed. "We really looked to the sea as inspiration for a backdrop," Kaye-Honey said in statement.
For the month of June, Providence is celebrating its ninth anniversary with a four-course tasting menu for $80 a person.
