French food?  You love the stuff!  French fries, French toast, French dressing, French's mustard ...

Born and raised in Provence, Felix has been developing his art since the age of 16 by beginning his apprenticeship with his father at the famous Jane Madeleine Restaurant. Moving to Chapel Hill has allowed him to combine this experience with the freshest local ingredients to create a fine-tuned menu and a superb wine list.

In addition to casual indoor seating, Provence has a pleasant patio for an even more relaxed dining experience.  Très bon!

TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
