When Westfield, New Jersey's Chez Catherine changed hands last October, its new owners decided to take the operation in a slightly different direction. It would continue as a white tablecloth French restaurant but the menu would be more modern and a bit lighter, according to co-owner Stephane Bocket. This change was accompanied by a new design, one that features modern touches tempered by rustic elements common to the Provence region of France.
