Replaces long-standing Provence Restaurant, which closed due to pandemic

GUILDERLAND, NY– Josie’s Table, a new locally sourced eatery, is now open in Stuyvesant Plaza. It has replaced Provence Restaurant & Wine Bar after more than two decades.

Josie’s Table is a farm-to-table restaurant that focuses on local, organic, and seasonal ingredients. Its bar specializes in a variety of natural and organic wines, house infusions, and specialty cocktails with locally distilled spirits. The new restaurant is named after owner Daniel Darves-Bornoz’s mother, Josephine. His son Peter, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, is the restaurant’s executive chef.

“This is truly a family affair and I’m excited to share this experience with my son,” said Darves-Bornoz. “My mother was an incredible chef and taught me at a young age, and she is the reason both Peter and I went into the culinary arts. Closing Provence after such a long time was a difficult decision but I’m glad I can honor my mother with my new restaurant.”

Darves-Bornoz previously owned Provence Restaurant & Wine Bar in Stuyvesant Plaza, which was open for 21 years before it closed in mid-March of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Darves-Bornoz announced the following October that Provence would be replaced by Josie’s Table.

“We’re thrilled that Josie’s Table has opened in Stuyvesant Plaza. Farm-to-table is one of the newest and most popular restaurant trends, and we’re delighted to have an eatery that is both of-the-moment and locally sourced,” said Janet Kaplan, Vice President of Real Estate for Stuyvesant Plaza. “Josie’s Table is a great addition to our wide selection of locally-owned businesses in Stuyvesant Plaza. We wish Daniel good luck with his new restaurant and look forward to seeing his successes with this endeavor.”

Josie’s Table is open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Reservations are recommended; call 518-689-7777 or visit to reserve a table.
