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 Comeau from 6:00 to 9:00. The guys behind the bar will have some great spooky drink specials. Chef Sheldon is going to try his hand at fusion cuisine by adding a Provençal twist to some New Orleans inspired specials. Is it still fusion cuisine when you blend two different styles French of food? Who knows…

So, dust off your best zombie voodoo gear (Everybody has a voodoo outfit in the back of their closet right?), grab your shiniest beads, and join us for a great evening of New Orleans music and merry making.

We’ll be taking reservations as usual, so book your seat now before we fill up.

Did I mention that there will be Trick Or Treat prize draws for everyone who comes in costume? If not, then I have now…

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

JoieFarm Winemakers Dinner

Roll out with the JoieTeam on November 27th for some
baller vintage selections from the JoieFarm Cellar


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 they have been a client of since our 2004 vintage. They have been incredibly supportive over the years and we are honoured to participate.”

From there, it was just a matter of getting together with the Chefs, and the Winemaker to choose some wines, and create a menu to match. I say that like it was nothing, but I can assure you that there was plenty of tasting, discussion, tasting, experimentation, tasting, and of course tasting done in order to create this menu. For the more observant in the crowd, you’ll notice that there seems to be an excess of tasting, but that really is how it goes when we’re doing these things. It’s important to taste at every step of the process (sometimes more than once) to ensure that things are going the way you want them to. Plus, we just like to taste wine and food. I know that after all that tasting, everyone here is pleased with the outcome and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve created.

Heidi had this to say about the process of putting together this dinner ” The creation of the menu for our winemaker’s dinner was a three-way collaboration between Jean-Francis Quaglia, Josh Carlson, and myself. Josh has intimate knowledge of the JoieFarm portfolio having been working with our wines since our first vintage in 2004 and our wines speak well to JF’s Southern French heritage and his Mediterranean menu. This dinner will be a great opportunity to share a selection of our core wines, as well as wines from our library selection, with a menu that will elevate our wines.”

Where: Provence Marinaside – 1177 Marinaside Crescent

Poisson d’Avril 2018

I like fish, but I don’t like fishing. I like  wine, but I don’t like opening wine bottles. I like getting things, but I don’t like shopping. So what am I supposed to do?

Poisson d’Avril and all its fishy fun returns on April 1, 2018; and with it, the solution to all of my problems. We have a great three-course menu complete with wine pairings. Order the menu for your chance to ‘fish’ for one of our great (or not so great) prizes. You might just catch yourself a free dinner. Not every fishing trip is a success; you might prefer to throw your prize back so you don’t end up doing the dishes.

Goût de France 2018

Goût de France, France’s largest food festival. Now spread across five continents it is an opportunity to experience the warmth of the French people through great food. This year, Provence will be participating in a three-course menu for $62 with an optional wine pairing for $26. This special menu is comprised of French-inspired dishes from our regular menu selected personally by Chef Jean-Francis Quaglia. Chef Jean-Francis comes by his culinary skills naturally. His mother was a very well-known chef in France, while he was growing up underfoot in her kitchen. He began cooking at a young age and has always loved to spread the joy of good food to his friends and family. He was especially pleased when the French Consulate asked him to participate as one of the Vancouver restaurants for Goût de France.

We hope that you will join us on March 21 to celebrate good food and good friends in the French style.
