Even as their first restaurant State Bird Provisions was rocketing chef-owners Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski to culinary stardom, they were hard at work on renovating the 1911 theater next door into The Progress. All wood and plants and pottery, this lofty space is designed for a banquet feast served up family-style on beautiful platters. The food at The Progress combines flavors from around the world into dishes like roasted and grilled rabbit with shishitos, artichokes and bacon or half dozen quail egg roti with smoked ham and green olive sauce. Desserts are no less exciting and often trend towards the savory, like roasted corn pudding with sungold tomato caramel, white chocolate and pluots. If you have trouble getting a table, stop by the stylish bar and lounge where you can order dishes ȧ la carte from the main menu.
