THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bistro Provence Restaurant Review

: Gregarious chef-owner Miki Zivkovic, previously the chef at Pinot Bistro, is behind this inviting California bistro incongruously set in a Burbank shopping center. With its mustard-yellow walls, warm wood paneling and linen-clad tables, it's a handsome, homey environment in which to enjoy Zivkovic’s creations. Among starters are crispy gnocchi with truffled ricotta, fennel-crusted ahi, or a salad of manchego cheese, baby spinach, apples, walnuts and dates. Entrées include lobster potpie, wild mushroom risotto or beef bourguignon, while desserts might range from profiteroles to bread pudding. Staff is pleasant and the personable chef likes to work the room. The wine list is eclectic and affordable, and Zivkovic regularly hosts interesting winemaker dinners. In Burbank, where chain restaurants dominate, Bistro Provence is a delightful option for locals, execs from neighboring studios, and anybody looking for a charming hideaway.
