ABOUT CHEZ MONTIER

 

Chez Montier, Inc., founded in 2004, is a premiere Food, Décor, and Lifestyle consultancy providing boutique catering, floral, event and interior design services.

Our mission is to empower the world to live and eat well.

The inspiration for Chez Montier was born out of the creative talents of Juan H. Montier, who developed a flair for cooking and designing at an early age. Juan leveraged his foundation in interior design and grew his work with clients blossoming his service into a uniquely coined offering of Food, Décor, and, Lifestyle. Chez Montier, the intersection of Juan’s passion in these three areas, is brought to fruition with Juan's wife and business partner, Judith Service Montier, a marketing and communications executive with a background in the arts and entertainment.

At Chez Montier, we believe that your eyes eat before your mouth does. Our objective is to thrill and excite our clients with incredible food, fantastic service, and a dynamic environment. We take the ordinary and make it extraordinary by exposing people, in a catering setting, to fare that is usually only experienced in upscale, private dining environments, such as foie gras mousse, duck confit, lobster bisque and savory crab and shrimp cheesecake.

As we plan our events, we bring the eye of an interior designer, incorporating spatial and theatrical considerations, including lighting and experiential flow. Our sensitivity to texture and design is evident in our presentation, as well as in our florals and event decor, creating a synergy between our food and the environment.

Chez Montier brings a joyous celebration of food and design to living.

 

We invite you to join us on our

Food, Décor, and Lifestyle adventures!

Chez Montier catered my summer office party. He presented several wonderful options for the event. I decided upon the New Orleans theme dinner. The Gumbo Bar was amazing! The whole evening was successful from the delicious food and specialty drinks to the service. It was so successful that my wife hired Chez Montier to surprise me for my birthday a few weeks later.

Chez Montier and I planned a surprise birthday dinner for my husband. It was a seated dinner for a small gathering of friends. He helped me arrange a beautiful table and we worked together selecting the menu and wines for the four-course elegant birthday dinner. It was a memorable experience with fantastic food, wine, service, and the special touch of being prepared in my own home.
