Upscale French eatery Chef J Bistro takes its name from executive chef Jethro Joseph, who understands that fine dining can be relaxing rather than fussy. His cooking has received accolades from publications such as the Gulf Coast Times, which called his four-star gourmet fare “mouthwatering.” Chef J curates two seasonal menus replete with seafood, smoky pastas, and steak, among other dishes. His staff understands the importance of presenting entrees elegantly, supplementing them with artfully scattered greens or sandwiches made in the shape of Picasso’s Guernica.

Q&A with Diana, Owner

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.

Painting, even with no skill, is like therapy. Our events create a moment in time where you can let life stresses fade away.

Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?

Everyone who attends a Paint Niche event receives personal attention and walks away with a personal masterpiece. Classes are taught in a step-by-step process, ensuring everyone is successful, even those who have never picked up a paintbrush.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

I have always been interested in art. I began creating my own mini masterpieces as a young child. I had art classes every year from childhood to adulthood. I graduated with my bachelor's in fine arts and my master's in education. ... Creating art is a way for every person to express themselves. Whether your art is hanging in your own home or on a gallery wall, the meaning behind it is always from within.
