Where to Eat in Vancouver: Poisson d’Avril – Delicious and Ocean Wise at Provence Marinaside, Yaletown

Posted by on Apr 8, 2010 in News | 0 comments

Last week, I attended a fun dinner event at my one of my favourite breakfast spots in town, Provence Marinaside. In the summer, my perfect morning starts with a glass of mimosa, some freshly baked chocolate coissants, and maybe some yogurt or a seafood benedict. Gazing over the sparkling waters and watching the funny dogs walk by make me feel very blessed to live in Vancouver.

(I really tried to resist but one time, I saw a really big dog pee on a little dog tied to a lamp-post across the street. The little dog didn’t mind but the owner flipped out! Oh how tragic and hilarious. But moving on…)

The Poisson d’Avril evening was the first time I had dinner at Provence and it won’t be my last. “From April 1st through 30th, join Provence Marinaside in Yaletown for some finny fun and fine food at its second annual Poisson d’Avril. In France, ‘Poisson d’Avril’ (April’s Fish) is a one day affair corresponding to our April Fool’s Day”.

Check out the gorgeous dishes I enjoyed while sipping on rosé, the ideal accompaniment.

What sealed the deal for me was Provence’s dedication to providing quality and sustainable seafood. “As an inaugural member of Ocean Wise, we serve only fish that have been harvested in a sustainable and responsible manner. That still gives us plenty of choice,” states Provence’s Executive Chef and Owner, Jean-Francis Quaglia.

Fish lovers rejoice! Experience a sustainable and delicious menu by the marina this April.

See the 3 course menu ($45). Whole fish of the day (+$5).
