Cafe Provencal

Here in the United States we expect Tex-Mex in the Southwest, California cuisine on the West Coast and lobsters up in Maine. France has its regional cuisines, too. It's not all heavy cream sauces and elegant-but-sparse presentations. The full-flavored style of Provence in the South of France, in fact, perfectly mingles with our current lifestyles and dietary preferences. Is that what's behind the popularity of Café Provencal? Or is it the casual accessibility, their prix fixe offerings, their fresh specials or the upbeat atmosphere? Whatever it is, it works beautifully.
