Pinot Provence is a fine dining French Restaurant that can be found inside of the Westin hotel, located in the city of Costa Mesa, California which is across the street from the South Coast Plaza Mall.  Pinot Provence is a restaurant within the Patina Group which has over fifty restaurants across the United States.  I love Pinot Provence and even recently did a write up

Wine Pairing Dinner Menu of the Past

about a French Wine Dinner I attended there. See my review here —> PINOT PROVENCE FRENCH WINE PAIRING DINNER.  If you missed the wine dinner mentioned above, you are in luck because Pinot Provence will now once again be having more wine dinners available for you to attend! This set of dinners will be called the Sommelier Fireside Dinners.

  1. […] I recommend making a trip to this restaurant, Pinot Provence for the last night of the Tour De France Menu that will be held this upcoming Wednesday, July 17.  The four-course meal is $70 a person, $100 with wine pairing (believe me…wine pairing is a must)  Reservation time slots are available between the hours of 5:00pm & 9:00 pm. If you thoroughly enjoy good food and wine, this is one event you do not want to miss.  Even if you cannot make it this upcoming Wednesday, check out Pinot Provence soon! It is conveniently located across the street from South Coast Plaza and is attached to the Westin hotel down the street from a variety of theaters, including Segerstrom Center for the Arts  and the South Coast Reperatory.  Enjoy!  See another wine pairing dinner called Sommelier Fireside Dinners happening October & November 2013 here —> SOMMELIER FIRESIDE DINNERS.
