Providence, Michael Cimarusti's culinary temple celebrating the wonders of seafood, has quickly become a byword for exquisite dining in Los Angeles. One can hardly fathom the pleasures of eating wildly creative and delicately presented dishes like razor-clam risotto or sea urchin scrambled eggs, let alone preparing them yourself.

But for a lucky few who show up on Sunday, you can take advantage of a private cooking demonstration held by Cimarusti himself in Providence's kitchens -- okay, $150 per person is quite a sum, but you get to taste the dishes alongside the staff's wine recommendations. What's on the menu?

  • Tai Snapper with Razor Clams in Sake Broth with Lemon Zest and Olive Oil
  • Halibut with Morels and Asparagus
  • Artic Char with Salt Roasted Parsnips, Parsnip Purée and Wasabi Butter

Maybe tomorrow morning's too soon for you? Well there's a "New Style Sushi" course coming up on Sunday, April 20th. The class will be presented in the kitchen with Chef Cimarusti and Chef de Cuisine Yu Min Lin. Tasting portions, which no doubt will be practically wriggling with freshness, are served in the dining room for you to taste. If that wasn't enough, Providence Sommelier, Drew Langley will present wine suggestions for the prepared dishes (must be 21 or older to enjoy the wine, of course).Providence LA.
