Provence Marinaside News and Events

Gift Card Sale 2018

For as long as we’ve been here on this planet, the sharing of food has been a universal thing across cultures. During the holiday season this is more evident than ever with office parties, family gatherings, and celebrations with friends. The University of Tartu has a great article from 2015 that gets into this subject […]

It’s Halloween – Laissez les bon temps rouler

For the first time, Provence is celebrating Halloween! We’ve celebrated at The Wine Bar in the past, but never in the main restaurant. To mark the occasion, we’re combining Provençal French with American Bayou French with a New Orleans styled dinner party. Hip Pocket will be playing the Scary Sounds of New Orleans with Gary […]

JoieFarm Winemakers Dinner

  When Wine Director Joshua Carlson, and Chef/Owner Jean-Francis Quaglia approached Heidi Noble from JoieFarm a to ask if they would be interested in doing a winemakers dinner, it was a resounding yes. In Heidi’s words, “We don’t often do winemaker’s dinners, however it was a great honour to have been asked by Provence Marinaside because […]

Taste of Yaletown 2018

Taste Of Yaletown has come a long way from its humble beginnings 14 years ago when it was a secret whispered about around the neighbourhood. With close to 30 restaurants participating last year (and likely more this year), TOY has become an event looked forward to by diners from all over the Lower Mainland. This […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018

The leaves are changing, the air is cooling, the kids are returning to school, the tourists have (mostly) gone home, and the Chef’s Top Ten is back at Provence – it must be fall! We like featuring our Top Ten dishes each fall; it’s our way of saying thank you to the locals for their […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week One: Lois Lake Steelhead

Week 1 of the Chef’s Top Ten features Sous Chef Mohit’s Seared Tarragon Chicken Thigh followed by one of Chef Jean Francis’ favourites, Seared Lois Lake Steelhead. This is Mohit’s third time contributing to the Top Ten, and in my opinion, his dish is one of the standouts this year. Don’t delay, make your reservation today […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Two: Piparras Pepper Dusted Seared Local Albacore Tuna

Until recently, I had no idea what the word tartine meant… I vaguely knew that it was food, but that’s about it. When you search Wikipedia for tartine, you get an article about a really great sounding bakery in San Francisco’s Mission district. (It sounds like a lovely place, you should check it out if […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Three: Seafood Linguini

Week three of the Chef’s Top Ten brings a dish from the earliest days of the now-defunct Provence Mediterranean Grill. The Seafood Linguini – sautéed clams, mussels, grilled fish, prawns, roasted garlic, and tomato sauce. Despite the apparent simplicity of pasta with tomato sauce and fish, it really does satisfy an itch that can sometimes be hard to […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Four: Grilled Line Caught BC Halibut

You know it’s fall when the pumpkin and cranberries come out. In our 4thweek, Chef de Cuisine Sheldon has created an appetizer that might as well be Pumpkin Pie that you can have before dinner. I introduce to you Pumpkin, Brie and Cranberry en Croûte with white balsamic reduction. Once you’ve finished your ‘appetizer’ you can […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Five: Sautéed Wild Prawns Provençal

I find the whole naming of pasta shapes confusing; for instance, do you know what shape Pansotti is? I know that for each shape, there is history, and a story, but sometimes I just want to order dinner. Lucky for me (and you) Chef de Cuisine Sheldon, did his research while he was creating the […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Six: Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Prawns

By the end of October, you might be feeling the winter blues, well we have the cure for that – House Cured Bacon and Lentil Soup with spiced yogurt and a lentil crisp. Top Ten rookie, Chef de Partie Yohannes is really making a splash with this one, watch for more from him in the future. […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Seven: Bouillabaisse

For the 7th week in our Top Ten, Chef de Partie Yohannes has given us a great Baby Beet Salad with herb whipped goat cheese, sorel, and orange vinaigrette. A trio of classic flavours, but like the power rangers, their combined power is greater than their individual parts. After the sweet, earthy flavours of beets and goat […]
