Buzz at Chez Catherine   

The August 2016 issue of New Jersey Monthly included Chez Catherine in their top 25 list of Top 25 Restaurants. Congratulations to Didier Jouvenet and his team! As importantly, at the end of this year Didier -- one of the last great, gracious, fastidious, old school French restauranteurs -- will retire and leave Chez Catherine in the capable hands of his longtime Maitre D', Stephane Bocket. Stop in to dine at Chez Catherine before Didier retires from his intimate place to say au revoir to Didier and bonjour to Stephane. 431 North Ave. W., 98.654.4011. www.chezcatherine.com
