Provence Marinaside News and Events
Big things are happening at Provence this month…
After more than 17 years in Yaletown, Provence Restaurants is pleased to announce our next big adventure.
Chef Jean-Francis and family have decided to pack up shop in Vancouver, and move to Fort McMurray Alberta. Over the next few months we will be working to meticulously recreate both The Wine Bar and Provence Marinaside exactly as they are here. Many of our long term staff have made the decision to follow, as this is an opportunity to really bring something exciting to this booming town.
Once again, Chef Jean-Francis looks to his past to celebrate his homeland and our namesake Provence. For inspiration, he draws from his mother Mamie Suzanne, and one of her old cookbooks La Table en Provence published in 1946. Long out of Print, the book is brittle, and held together by string and the dreams of a young Frenchman with a future in Canada.
Road 13 was recently voted 2018 Winery of The Year by Wine Align and we couldn’t be more pleased to have them as a partner for this exclusive event. Chef’s Jean-Francis and Sheldon have joined forces with our Wine Director, Joshua and Joseph Luckhurst from Road 13 Vineyards to bring you an amazing Rhône inspired 4 course paired dinner.

For as long as we’ve been here on this planet, the sharing of food has been a universal thing across cultures.
