A Grand Reveal Inside Connie & Ted's, Opening June 4

Elizabeth Daniels 5/13

Bright and cheerful, clean and modern, this is celebrated Providence chef Michael Cimarusti's vision of a modern day seafood shack, smack dab in the center of West Hollywood. One of the city's most exciting openings of 2013, here now a full tour around the property.

The cat's already out of the bag on most fronts. As mentioned, Connie & Ted's, named for Cimarusti's grandparents, opens to the public on June 4 after over a week of friends and family service.

Urban Daddy snagged a copy of the menu, truly a seafood lover's paradise. Plates are described simply enough like "Steamers with drawn butter and clam broth" and "Fried Pacific Oyster with cole slaw and spicy mayo," but those who have dined at Providence know that food here will be expertly executed using only the highest quality ingredients, in this case overseen by former Providence chef de cuisine Sam Baxter. By way of example, The Hook Burger calls for Hook's incredible (and pricey!) four-year aged cheddar. Many dishes from the raw bar and catch of the day are based on market availability, and in general prices range from $6 for a cup of chowder (three varieties) to $60 for a bone-in filet mignon.

Cockails by Laura Lindsay run $12, and there's also a very lengthy list of beer, from the crafty stuff (even sours!) to Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada. OpenTable is still not yet accepting resys, but soon.
