Chef Daniel Darves-Bornoz's mentors were pioneers in the practice of recommending wine to restaurant guests who had ordered certain dishes. The practice was so unheard of—even in Paris as recently as the '80s—that it was a “scandale à l’époque,” as legendary Chef Alain Senderens once called it.
This fact, though small, is but one of the many influences that France—its cuisine, its chefs, its culture—has had on Chef Darves-Bornoz, owner of Provence. He trained there, in Paris and in Brittany, for three years; he worked side by side with culinary giants Christian DeLouvier, Alain Chapel, and Chef Senderens in restaurants from New York to San Francisco. And now, at Provence, he serves traditional and contemporary French and Mediterranean cuisine—a menu not unlike what might be found in a seaside café in Nice, full of fois gras, escargots, and mussels in a creamy broth. Unsurprisingly, the wine selection plays an important role in the menu, too. With the restaurant's opening in '99, Darves-Bornoz rolled out an expansive wine list of over 150 vintages; today, the list still hovers around 125.
