    Rather, there is a complete disconnection between the two. I came to Connie and Ted's hoping to find Providence's cousin; but what I found were 2 restaurants that were different in quality that they might as well be strangers. If I had not known that this was Michael Cimarusti's restaurant and you had ask me to guess who was the owner of this restaurant, I would not have guessed that it was him because of the disparity in quality. I would surely give you a look of incredulity after you apprised me that it was owned by Michael Cimarusti. Maybe, he was trying to achieve a certain price point. As a result, he had to sacrifice quality along the way to remain profitable. Maybe.

    On a side note, I can't help but feel that at least on a subconscious level that this was Michael Cimarusti's way of contributing to a fair and equal society. I have been to Providence 5 times. As a result, I am familiar with the type of clientele at Providence. The prototypical client at Providence is erudite and successful. They tend to be lawyers, doctors, etc. Basically, they are people who did very well in school. How well? 3.7 GPA and above. On the other hand, the people at Connie and Ted's seem to be people who did better than average. For these people who Providence is a stretch outside their budget, I am sure that they are delighted to be able to afford a restaurant of a 2 Michelin star chef. However, what they don't understand is that the Michelin star is for the restaurant --- not for the chef. I contend that if it was for the chef, then there would be a high correlation in terms of quality from Providence to Connie and Ted's.

    I had the Oysters Rockefeller, the Naked Cowboy oysters, and the New England Clam Chowder. The Oyster Rockefeller were too much on the mushy side. Much better Oyster Rockefeller can be had at Mastro's. Before ordering the New England Clam Chowder, I asked the waiter if it was the same as the Chowda at Providence. He replied, "No." He was absolutely right. It was good, but no where near as heavenly as the chowda at Providence. The highlight of the dinner for me were the Naked Cowboy oysters. They were sweet and juicy. It is no wonder that they are the best sellers for most oyster bars. BTW, they did have live Santa Barbara uni for $18. In conclusion, I could see myself coming back for mainly one reason --- to try all the different oysters that they had. I give Connie and Ted's 4 stars for the reasons cited above. I just can't bring myself to give Connie and Ted's 5 stars when I know that there are restaurants that make the first 2 mentioned dishes much better.
