Provence Marinaside News and Events
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Hot on the heels of last week’s top ten dish, comes a favourite of Chef de Cuisine Sheldon Maloff – Olive Oil Poached Local Albacore Tuna. Chef’s Sheldon and Jean-Francis are serving the tuna with shishito peppers, gem tomatoes, fennel, fingerling potatoes, Moroccan olives and brown garlic infused olive oil. The mild to medium spice […]
It’s finally here… Chef’s Top Ten 2017! Summer’s winding down, and fall has begun to arrive in earnest. Join us from September 18th to 24th for the first week of the Chef’s Top Ten. Try the always popular Lois Lake Steelhead, served with sautéed baby spinach, shallots and a tri-colour potato terrine with dill yogurt […]
Do you ever find yourself sitting in a restaurant looking at the menu, thinking “I always order the same thing, I should try something new.” And then you end up ordering your favourite dish, like you have a thousand times before? I do it, and it’s not a bad thing. Research (and I use the […]
We’ve all had one of those mornings where it seems like the day has already gotten ahead of you before you’ve even had breakfast. Well, Provence has the cure for that, we’d like to introduce you to J’ai Mal Aux Cheveux. “What the heck does that even mean?” you ask… literally, it means “I have a hair problem.” According to Chef Jean-Francis, it’s about as close to having a hangover as the French get. That’s great, but what is it? Simply put, it’s happy hour for breakfast. So if you’ve woken up with bad hair, and feel the need for some hair of the dog that bit you, drop by from Monday to Friday and see us for some great breakfast, and a cocktail to set things right.
This September Adam Rohrlick and Hip Pocket Quartet will continue to play a great mix of smooth Jazz, blues, and contemporary instrumentals from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Join Chef Jean-Francis at Earthwise Society’s 6th Annual Heirloom Tomato Fest.
