Le Provençal is a lovely little bistro located in the town of Mamaroneck, and when my friend came down and was craving some French food, this is where we decided to go.
For my meal I decided to try something I had never had before, duck, and oh boy was that a good decision because this is one of the best cooked birds I have ever had.
This dish is making me say something I never thought I’d say; duck is the steak of birds; and when I say that, I literally mean it reminded me of a steak.
The meat was thick, but shredded easily enough to consume quickly (unlike some steaks that require you chew for awhile), and the port wine sauce that it was bathed in was sweet and delicious. This meal simply melts in your mouth, thats how good it is.
I absolutely recommend that everyone who reads this tries this dish, it is one of the best meals, let alone birds, I have ever eaten. Not to mention that for such a fancy and high quality meal, it is very reasonably priced; and their wine selection is quite good.
It is also worth mentioning that, although unrelated to the taste of the food itself, the owners and staff are very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful, making the dining experience a good one. I hope you get a chance to experience it soon.
