StreetSmart

Provence and StreetSmart have had a great relationship since they first came to us with their plan to help those in the community who are in need. The concept is simple; when you dine in a StreetSmart participating restaurant, ask your server to add $1 (or more if you choose) to your bill. Every cent of […]

Live Jazz with Hip Pocket Trio

The rain is here, the leaves have begun to fall, and the dark days are upon us – winter is coming. At Provence Marinaside, we think that music is the perfect way to brighten the dark days and warm the cold nights. Join us as Adam Rohrlick and Hip Pocket Trio play a mix of […]

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.

Now, half way across the world, Chef JF grows […]

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