At Chez Jacqueline, pastel colors, rough-hewn wood tables, and sprays of flowers transport diners to a Provençal bistro. Crevettes grillée highlights the dinner menu, its grilled shrimp copping Provençal style by rolling in regional seasonings and shavings from the Palme d’Or film prize. Pair entrees such as the roasted salmon with a pale member of the roster of more than 30 wines, or select a red to sip alongside the braised pork shoulder, which can-cans in a garlic-confit skirt. Crème brûlée slinks across the dessert menu, which also features a caramelized-apple tart that plays badminton with globes of crème anglaise and vanilla ice cream.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Chez Jacqueline a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
For more than 30 years, the chefs of James Beard-recognized Chez Jacqueline have captured the flavors France's Côte d'Azur with upscale Provençal eats and plenty of wine. In the morning, Jacqueline's brunch menu runs the gamut from eggs benedict to mussels with white wine and shallots. The dinner menu brims with pre-theater meals of trout, steak, and stews, and a slew of daily specials convey the tastes of southern France via lamb loin, duck, or stuffed mushrooms. The restaurant's pastel walls, large windows, and an aggressive berets-only policy seek to capture the atmosphere of the French Riviera.
