Provence Marinaside News and Events
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
Making his debut appearance in the Chef’s Top Ten, Jonathon has created an amazing dish that compliments the fall weather perfectly – Confit Brussels Sprouts and Mascarpone Tarte with beet root salad and pesto vinaigrette. I know brussels sprouts sometimes get a bad rap, but you really can’t go wrong when you add mascarpone. Follow the […]
New to the scene at Provence, Chef de Partie Anthony is making waves in the kitchen. You know what else makes waves? Ducks… ducks make waves, you know, when they swim. Anthony though makes a Nutmeg Seared Duck Breast with butternut squash purée, roasted acorn squash, and apple vinaigrette. This is our week 9 appetizer, which […]
When I think of winter vegetables, kale is often one of the first things to come to mind for me. And one of my favourite things to match with kale is mushrooms. So now we have kale and mushrooms, can anybody guess what the next ingredient is going to be? It has to be bacon, […]
We’ve had a great heirloom tomato season this year, and it looks like we’re going to be able to continue serving our tomato menu well into September. If you haven’t joined us for tomato month yet, what are you waiting for? If you have come in and enjoyed this amazing fruit masquerading as a vegetable, […]
We’re wrapping up our lobster menu for another year, but don’t worry, we always have fresh Atlantic Lobster on the menu. For the month of August, we’ll be serving everyone’s favourite imposter vegetable, the ever-versatile tomato. Most of us know that the tomato is a fruit, but it always seems to masquerade as a vegetable. […]
Homarus Americanus, Atlantic Lobster, or Canadian Lobster – whatever you call it, you can’t deny that lobster is a delicacy that can’t be compared to anything else. The month of July is Lobster Fest at Provence, and we’ve got a great 3 course menu ($62) with optional wine or petit wine pairings ($26/$16) so that you can experience the joy that is lobster.
We’re very excited to announce that Provence Marinaside Restaurant will be an official live music venue in this year’s upcoming TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival starting from June 22nd to July 1st. Hip Pocket will be presenting five special live music performances at Provence during the festival. Make your reservations to enjoy live jazz when you dine with us.
At Provence, summer weather always means a new menu with great new seafood options, and in May we get fresh BC Spot Prawns. Spot Prawn season this year is set to open in mid-May, so we plan to begin offering our Spot Prawn menu on May 15.
