Chez Catherine Completes Restaurant Renovations with New Ownership & New Executive Chef

Chez Catherine Completes Restaurant Renovations with New Ownership & New Executive Chef

Chez Catherine Restaurant in Westfield NJ has been known as one of New Jersey’s top destinations since 1979 for classic French cuisine. Former maître d'hôtel, now Restauranteur Stephan Bocket and his business partner Michael Cowan recently purchased this renowned restaurant and have invigorated this Westfield staple with beautiful renovations, new menus and a fresh staff headed by Executive Chef Christine Migton.

The soft grand re‐opening in March met the anticipation with substance. The restaurant has now ushered in a new modern elegant European feel to its dining room with a plaster stone effect on the walls, a beautiful coffered ceiling with elegant unobtrusive lighting creating a wonderfully warm comfortable ambiance. The new menu offers many classic dishes including Dover Sole prepared tableside as well as enticing new‐era dishes prepared by Executive Chef Migton that are a wonderful exemplification of culinary excellence from food quality to preparation and presentation. The new menu when paired with Chez Catherine’s exceptional wine list creates a truly special dining experience.
