Chez Pascal in Providence

for our first wedding anniversary, Priya and I drove up to Providence for a movie (Midnight in Paris) and dinner at Chez Pascal. The movie was OK, but the dinner was excellent!

Pate & charcuterie plate, including a duck liver pate & a bunch of pork pates, including a country pate and a head pate, and some house-made sopressata:

Marinated Beets with Fried Hazelnuts, Honey Vinaigrette & Shy Brothers’ Farm Hannahbell Cheese:

Roasted Brined Bone-in Local Chicken Breast with Potato Purée, Wilted Greens & Caramelized Onion Sauce:

Roasted Local Fluke Filet with a Ragoût of Fava Beans, English Peas, Radishes & Bacon,
Seared Gateaux de Riz and Citrus Compote:

Chocolate Molten Cake with Espresso Anglaise, Chocolate Cacao Nibs & Mint Ice Cream Sandwich with Coconut Milk Jam, and Whipped Cream Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse with Four Town Farm Strawberries:

Definitely recommended; I feel like this restaurant could have stood its ground even in NYC.
