I saw the blurb on Eater about an upcoming collaboration dinner between Chef Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana (Modena, Italy) (Michelin 3 Star and Ranked #1 on the World’s Best 50 List) and Chef Michael Cimarusti (Providence), being held at Providence.
I still dream about his dessert at In Situ (thanks @PorkyBelly for the tip), and can only imagine what a specially prepared dinner would be like.
I called up Providence, apparently it’s:
May 4, 2017 @ Providence
$500 per person
Waiting List Only at this point.
It’s too rich for my blood, but if any of our FTC ballers are going, please report back! I need to live vicariously through your pics.
Chef-Owner Michael Cimarusti of Providence, welcomes Chef Massimo Bottura of three Michelin-starred and “World’s 50 Best” restaurant Osteria Francescana (Modena, Italy) for a very special and highly intimate nine-course dinner celebrating the first-ever collaboration between these two luminary chefs.

Seating is very limited for this event. Please call (323) 460-4170 for reservations.
Eaten at Providence a few times and don’t remember much tbh. Food is better at Eleven Madison Park for not much more money. Alinea in Chicago was probably weakest on flavor, but insanely memorable overall. Not a lot of fine dining seems to be worth it for me, but I guess that is why it’s a luxury. Value will never be there.
