News capsule

A new restaurant named Aix en Provence has quietly opened in Eastover next to the Starbucks. The restaurant describes itself as “a Seasonal Provencal and Mediterranean Bistro focusing on Southern French, Northern Spanish and Northern Italian cuisine using locally sourced ingredients with unique spices from countries around the Mediterranean Sea.” Sounds fancy and delicious.

Fast facts

  • Brand new, just opened about a week ago. Purchased the restaurant that was previously there, Terra.
  • Hours: Monday – Thursday (5 p.m. – 10 p.m.),  Friday-Saturday (5 p.m. – 11 p.m.), closed Sunday.
  • Will be launching a French onion soup soon. Sounds delicious.
  • Large wine list – wine by the glass as well.
  • Craft cocktails (menu below).
  • The owners love charcuterie. 4 different types on a daily basis.
  • Small menu (I love small menus). Early popular menu items include Escargot ($14), Tagliatelle ($19, ragout of lamb, preserved lemon), Frog Legs ($16, provencal, spinach, micro-greens) and Cassoulet Campagnard ($29, duck confit, garlic sausage, lardons).
