BOO! Did I scare you?

Yeah, ok, I guess that joke doesn’t work well in writing… Let me start over. Halloween is back! For the third year we’re throwing a little Halloween shindig in The Wine Bar, from 3:00pm to late. We’ll have spooky decorations, and since the 31st falls on a Tuesday this year, we’ll be offering our Tappy Hour […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Ten: Whole Mediterranean Fish

The Whole Mediterranean Fish is a regular feature on our menu, but it’s so much more than that. This dish has history; Chef Jean-Francis remembers making it with his mom using fennel grown in their garden when he was just a youngster growing up in Marseille. Now, half way across the world, Chef JF grows […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Nine: AAA Canadian Beef

You might be surprised to learn that at Provence Marinaside, we consider ourselves a French Mediterranean restaurant. Our menu may have a heavy focus on seafood, but we do also cook a mean steak. This week we have a AAA Canadian Beef Filet with green beans, shiitake mushrooms, smoked roma tomato, pomme frites, and red […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Eight: Rack of Lamb

Lamb and mustard; I guess I always knew they were a good match. I just didn’t know how good until I started eating at Provence. We have Chef Jean-Francis’ famous Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb for you all week long. With its herb and Dijon crust, this has got the one of the most delightful […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Seven: Bouillabaisse

Love it or hate it, Bouillabaisse has been around for a long time at Provence, and it’s not going away any time soon. Many people believe that Chef Jean Francis’ Bouillabaisse is as close to the authentic dish served in France, as you’re going to get in Vancouver. This bold fish soup filled with clams, […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Six: Wild Mushroom Ravioli

Wild mushrooms, prawns, butter, wine – there’s really no need to say more about the entrée for week six of the Chef’s Top Ten at Provence. Ok, maybe I should say a little more. Week Six brings us the Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Prawns. Raviolis stuffed with wild mushrooms, and served in a white wine […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Five: Seafood Linguine

We’ve been serving our Seafood Linguini exactly the same way since Jean-Francis and Alessandra opened Provence Mediterranean Grill. Once you’ve perfected something there’s really no point in changing it. What’s that expression… if it ain’t broke don’t fix it? Well, the Seafood Linguini may be a standard dish served in many restaurants, but it definitely […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Four: Prawns Provençal

One of the longest running dishes on the menu at Provence Marinaside (and previously Provence Mediterranean Grill) are the Sautéed Prawns Provençal. While the dish has seen many incarnations over the years, at its’ core, it has remained largely unchanged. Relying on a traditional Provençal preparation using brandy, butter, parsley and garlic this is one […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2017 – Week Three: Pacific Halibut

Week Three sees us serving up Grilled Pacific Halibut, a perennial favourite here in Vancouver. Halibut may be one of the most versatile fish in the arsenal of Chef Jean-Francis – it works well with almost every flavor. Halibut is often served with lemon, but just to be different, we’ve chosen to use grapefruit. Served […]
