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 Chow.com 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." - Chow.com

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!
