Discover the Magic of Provence

Provence, situated in the southeastern corner of France, is a land of timeless beauty, characterized by rolling vineyards, fragrant lavender fields, and picturesque sunflower-covered hills. Beyond its scenic landscapes, Provence is known for its rich culinary heritage, which emphasizes fresh ingredients, vibrant flavors, and a deep connection to local traditions.

Provence's culinary tradition is rooted in using simple, fresh ingredients to create dishes that burst with flavor. Olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, and aromatic herbs like rosemary, thyme, and oregano are fundamental to Provençal cuisine. Dishes like ratatouille, bouillabaisse, and tapenade have become synonymous with the region's gastronomic identity.

The wines of Provence are celebrated worldwide for their elegance and finesse. The region is renowned for producing exceptional rosé wines that encapsulate the region's spirit—light, refreshing, and perfect for warm summer days. The Coteaux d’Aix en Provence appellation, where many of the featured wines originate, is known for its diverse range of wines, each reflecting the unique terroir of the area.

During this week-long celebration, Petite is bringing the flavors of Provence to your plate. Our specially-curated prix fixe menu additions highlight the essence of Provençal cuisine, featuring dishes prepared with fresh ingredients and traditional techniques that transport you straight to the heart of this picturesque region.
