When it comes to seafood restaurants in Southern California, Providence is unparalleled in everything from its passion for poisson to its artful presentation of these dishes. Chef and co-owner Michael Cimarusti is an avid fisherman himself and has cultivated close relationships with specialty seafood purveyors. The kitchen emphasizes the natural flavor of wild fish and shellfish, though Cimarusti is just as adept at proteins like duck and steak.
