Chez Catherine Renovation Nearing Completion

Chez Catherine Renovation Nearing Completion

After 38 years, Chez Catherine, a Westfield institution, is undergoing a complete renovation.  In addition to the dining rooms, many improvements including a new heating and air conditioning system will provide a more comfortable and quieter experience year ‘round.

The restaurant welcomed the third owners in its history in October 2016 when Stephane Bocket, a familiar face and long serving Maitre d’Hotel, joined with partner Michael Cowan to purchase the business from Didier Jouvenet. Planning for the renovation began well before the temporary closing with big ideas and dreams. For years Stephane had been waiting his turn to run this French fine dining institution.

Duke’s Deli & Convenience in Westfield Celebrates Grand Opening

Duke’s Deli & Convenience in Westfield Celebrates Grand Opening

Duke’s Deli, a shop with a long history in Westfield, reopened recently under new owners Asad and Sofia Hussain as Duke's Deli & Convenience. The couple, with staff and their family, celebrated Saturday with free tastings of Indian and Pakistani food and a ribbon cutting with Mayor Andy Skibitsky, representatives of the Downtown Westfield Corporation and members of the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce.

The original Duke’s Deli was a Westfield staple, known for its sub sandwiches. That restaurant closed more than 10 years ago and has since been both a pasta bar and a bakery. Duke’s was resurrected in the same spot, 339 South Avenue West (across from the train station) by former Duke’s employee Dominic DeStefanis in 2015.
