Provence Mediterranean Grill
We’ve recently hung out a lot with friends at Provence Mediterranean Grill (4473 West 10th Avenue). Each time, we’ve all gone for the trio of antipasti ($13). The pissaladií¨re, salty with anchovies and sweet with long-cooked onion; pesto-y Mediterranean vegetables; farro salad with apple and fennel—it’s all good. Forced to pick only three, I’d say roasted free-range chicken, grilled chili squid, and maybe those haricots verts with the little black nií§oise olives. Consistency is a lost art at too many restaurants, but here flavours are as intense, fresh, and sun-soaked as they were when Jean-Francis and Alessandra Quaglia opened 11 years ago.
