Cafe Provence in Prairie Village has been named one of the nation’s top 100 restaurants by OpenTable, and it is the only honoree in Kansas.

It’s not the first time the French eatery has made a national list. In 2013, Cafe Provence made Zagat’s “top service” list.

The restaurant located at 3936 W. 69th Terrace is run by chef Patrick Quillec, who hails from Brest, a large port city in Brittany. His menu features progressive French cuisine. Every Tuesday, Quillec offers a four-course seasonal prix fixe menu for $42. On Dec. 8, for instance, the menu features Mushroom and Truffle Risotto and Steak au Poivre.

In 2013, Quillec and his wife Joanee also opened French Market, a retail shop near the restaurant to sell some of the cafe’s products.

OpenTable curated its list from more than 5 million reviews collected between Nov. 1, 2014 and Oct. 31. The site explains that qualifying restaurants were “sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant’s average rating in the ‘overall’ category along with that restaurant’s rating relative to others in the same metropolitan area and the average number of restaurants reviewed by diners who reviewed that restaurant.”

There were no restaurants from Missouri on the list.
