Connie and Ted's!

If this new restaurant from chef Michael Cimarusti is anything like Providence the food will be fantastic!

I've heard great things already, so now it's on our Best of LA calendar on the first weekend I could find a table before 10pm. Really.

Here's some of what had to say:

"Michael Cimarusti’s restaurant Providence is renowned for its food and service, so when news came that the chef would open a more casual concept in West Hollywood, eager 'hounds counted down to opening day.

Named after Cimarusti’s immigrant grandparents, Connie and Ted’s is a contemporary seafood shack with a truckload of East Coast classics. There’s a raw bar with fresh oysters and clams, Rhode Island “stuffies” with linguiça, chowders, Portuguese fish stew, a lobster roll (served hot or cold), and slew of other dishes sourced from the sea. For dessert there’s a blondie with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce and an Indian pudding made with New England cornmeal and molasses, among others. Bold red accents, dark wood tables, floor-to-ceiling windows, and one wall papered in old delivery slips make up the interior. “It's a very playful, fun look,” says susiequeue." -

Looks great!

A $10 deposit holds your spot at our very hard to get table for 6, and will be refunded through amazon payments after you attend or if you cancel at least 24 hours in advance. Canceling on the same day as the Meetup is considered by us to be the same as being a "no-show" and it will cancel your membership in this group. Forfeited deposits will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

Join us for dinner at Connie and Ted's!

    Connie and Ted's has a warm, "stay and relax" vibe like its in another part of the country which is cool. Nice energy, too loud for conversation so we sat on the patio. Feels like a small town seafood shack magically got their hands on the best ingredients and chefs and interior designers, and a killer soundtrack of the Temptations and Ray Charles. Service was a little slow but pleasantly accommodating of our special requests. Prices were about $50 each which is much less than usual for us. There were two star chef sightings too: Sang Yoon and Jonathan Waxman! Once again our table got a sprinkling of magic dust from the universe and there was lots of laughter and good conversation. Nights like this were what I'd hoped for when creating this Meetup. Thanks for the pleasure of your company you guys!

      No. The deposit only comes when you reserve a spot.

    Have been really wanting to experience this place, especially because I'm from New England and miss the wonderful seafood there. If no spaces open up, will hope for another time! Good eating, everyone!!
