Provence has seen only few changes over the last 15 years. And since the change of ownership in 2012 by Chef Baptist Knaven and his business partner Jerry King, you’ll still find all of your classic favorites such as the beautiful Trout Provencal and Whole Fish baked in Rock Salt, as well as the Onion Soup and Lobster Bisque on the menu.
Chef Baptist came to the United States in 2003 and has earned his accolades in the U.S. at his very successful Mediterranean restaurant “Café Zito” on the North Carolina coast, until he moved to the Triangle and started working at Provence. Working with Felix Roux, a Provence, France native, gave him the edge in classic French cuisine and that is what his menu is based on.
Enjoy a casual dining atmosphere, inside or out-, with an impressive French and international wine selection. Enjoy our great seasonal salads and entrées, and choose from our all in-house made desserts like Pain Perdu and Profiterole.
Bon Appétit!
