Connie and Ted's
Monday, April 3rd
At his trio of seafood-focused concepts, Executive Chef Michael Cimarusti combines his knowledge and appreciation of the dynamic nature of seafood with an advocacy for sustainable fishing practices evident in every dish. Cimarusti’s acclaimed first restaurant Providence, a bastion of Los Angeles fine dining for over a decade, has yielded several James Beard Award nominations and two highly coveted Michelin stars. Located in the heart of West Hollywood, Connie and Ted’s pays homage to Cimarusti’s grandparents and the simple, honest seafood cookery of New England. His newest venture is Cape Seafood and Provisions, a sustainable seafood market serving wild-caught whole fish and custom filets, USDA Prime steaks and chops, and a variety of prepared items and grab-and-go dishes. Today, Cimarusti, Echiverri, and Co-Owner Donato Poto operate Providence, Connie & Ted’s, and Cape Seafood and Provisions. Outside of his restaurants, Michael actively supports the Special Olympics and always finds time to go fishing with his two children.
