La Provence

25020 Hwy. 190
Lacombe , LA, 70445 , United States
TEL: (985) 626-7662

Located about an hour outside of New Orleans, La Provence brings the flavors of France to rural Louisiana. Owned by celebrated local chef John Besh, the restaurant evokes the French countryside with its hardwood floors, exposed oak beams, and stucco walls hung with bucolic artwork. Its two dining rooms are separated by a wood-burning fireplace, and seating is also available on the seasonal outside patio. Using ingredients produced on the restaurant’s small farm, chef Erick Loos crafts traditional French fare like slow-roasted duckling with peaches, potato purée, and ratatouille. Dishes are paired with wines from Provence and the Rhône Valley.

Insider Tip:

If the restaurant isn’t overly busy, feel free to request a tour of the kitchen and the adjacent gardens; the staff is usually happy to oblige.
