La Provence was one of north shore’s dining landmarks until it closed in 2018. What was once a French restaurant, will now open as a hotel and events venue. The spot is perfect for this as it has been compared in the past to a classic French country inn.
Cayman and Danny Sinclair, brothers and local entrepreneurs, purchased the property which they plan to turn into the small hotel and events venue naming it the Inn at La Provence.
“I feel like there’s so much value in that name, it’s so recognized; it means a lot to people. It would be a shame to lose that,” said Cayman Sinclair.
The single-story building currently has several dining rooms and a “lodge-like lounge” with a fireplace. La Provence, which was built and opened by Chris Kerageorgiou in 1972, became one of the north shore’s most respected restaurants. Well known for Kerageorgiou’s quail gumbo and braised rabbit, his lamb a la Grecque and the little pots of chicken liver pâté set down with the bread, La Provence gave residents a great place to create fond memories.
“My family would stay for hours, sitting around that fire in the front room,” he said. “It was a classic place. We’re really excited to be able to revitalize it.”
The brothers plan will be to reconfigure the existing building for the events venue and build small bungalow-style structures on the two-acre property. The 28 room hotel and events venue would be a perfect place for weddings, corporate meetings and retreats.
“We can host the event, they can stay on the property, and from here they can go to other restaurants for rehearsal dinners or their night out,” he said.
Set to open in Fall of 2019, the Inn at La Provence will also open to the public for brunch on Sundays.
