La Provence restaurant resumes operation


La Provence restaurant in Lake Grove has reopened after making repairs and cleaning up following a fire on Feb. 4.

Scott Murphy, general manager for La Provence, said the restaurant had a soft opening on Tuesday. It was not yet ready to serve its breakfast menu.

“We’re having some delay as we wait for the final inspections,” Murphy said. “For lunch today we were about 90 percent capacity. But things could be pretty wild this weekend.”

La Provence had to repair an estimated $25,000 in water and smoke damage following the fire, which ignited in a wall space next to the kitchen. Much worse damage was prevented by a lone sprinkler.
