Hey guys, Have you been to Bistro Provence in Burbank. I went 3 times this past month and Loved it!!!! It's somewhat hidden in a Von's stripmall right next to a starbucks. Easy free parking!! The food and prices are amazing It's high end quality food that doesn't break the bank.....and how can you beat a $2 corkage fee. Yes, they have wine and beer, but it's nice to know you can bring your own bottle for just 2 bucks. We each had and appetizers. I had the Beet Napolen..roasted beets lyered with Goat cheese..YUM. The wife had homemade crispy Gnochi with cherry tomatoes , spinach and muchrooms. They were like little clouds that melted in your mouth. On to entrees. I had my new favorite dish I think of all time..The twice cooked pork. The waiter Bob described it in such a way I coudln't resist...and he was spot on with his recommendation. It was this amazing tender pork shoulder on a bed of this mixture of sauerkraut, bacon potatoe, and some diced apple. I had it again last night.

They have about 5 or 6 desserts..all made on the premises. We shared an Apple tartetin and this so good Lemon Curd thing with frsh strawberries and Meringue.

You goota give the hidden gem of a bistro a try.
I think the website is www.bistroprovenceburbank.com

Thanks Bob..he was our waiter

    Just wanted to add my two cents on Bistro Provence -- I love it too!! "Hidden gem" is truly the term. It is small, cozy, friendly and it feels like France to me, hold the attitude and smoking. Been there dozens of times (or so!) and even went right after seeing the Julie/Julia movie -- me and about 20 others all ordering the Boef (sp? beef!) Bourgionone (sp?!) I felt like something of an idiot being so "typical", but it was very good. They have good lamb too as well as garlic roasted chicken and more. Highly recommend for a sweet neighborhood charmer.
