On Sunday December 21st, 15 people invaded Providence for a late nite assault on what some considers to be the finest desserts in all of LA. The end result: 6 cameras, 2 hours of dessert gorging,
2 3 neutral posts from bloggers (including myself), 9 courses, 1 attendee who had to quit Yelp after she received flame mail for her negative Providence reviews.
All I can say is.. WOW. Y’all rock. Providence? Thank you for the effort, it was my pleasure shaking Chef Vasquez’s hand (he usually doesn’t work on Sundays); Mr. John Parker of Providence Special Events: I’m sorry I was such a CHEAP BASTARD by not booking the whole back room at a minimum exspenditure of $65 per person, nor reserving the reservation with a $300 deposit.
Otherwise, I have no comment on the desserts. Had a GREAT fun sitting across a cute new couple (Kevin/Jenni *waves*), all of us attended something that’ll never happen again in the history of the restaurant (Chef Cimarusti himself called and advised this has NOT happened before), I’ve now finally tasted EVERYTHING from the 2 of the 3 restauranteurs featured in the banner picture of my site.
