Provence Marinaside’s Lobster Fest ‘Shellebrates’ Tasty Crustacean

The Goods from Provence Marinaside

Vancouver, BC | Whether you prefer them steamed, grilled, boiled or sautéed, everyone can agree they love the sumptuous flavour of fresh Atlantic lobster. Starting June 1st and for the full month of June, lobster lovers can indulge their crustacean passion as Provence Marinaside presents its annual Lobster Festival Menu.

This year Wine Director Joshua Carlson has paired the menu with wines from Nova Scotia’s multi-award-winning winery, Benjamin Bridge. “In keeping with our philosophy of what grows together goes together, I chose to pair the menu of Nova Scotia lobster with wines produced there as well,” he comments. “Benjamin Bridge Vineyards sparkling wines display the hallmarks of classic prestige cuvées from Champagne, but with a Nova Scotia signature.”

The special three-course menu is priced at $89 per person with the optional two-course Benjamin Bridge wine pairing at $31. If guests don’t wish to have the pairing, Provence Marinaside offers 125 wines-by-the glass and more than 260 wines by the bottle.
