On the Menu: Boston Meets Provence



March 29, 2011


Boston Meets Provence Housed in the former setting of the storied Charles Street Jail, Clink is one joint to which serious diners would happily be sentenced. Executive chef Joseph Margate—an Eleven Madison Park alum—has developed a modern French approach to seasonal cooking that has made him one of Boston’s breakout culinary stars. At tonight's Beard House dinner, chef Margate will be joined by vintner Valérie Rousselle-Riboud for an evening of contemporary cuisine française and Provençal wines.
