Chez Melange farm to table

To keep things fresh as possible, Chez Melange offers their food items “farm to table” and does not offer any outside delivery service such as Postmates or GrubHub.

“Chez truly steps it up when it comes to the quality and care of their food, owning a 'Seed to Plate' program where everything is grown fresh and produce from the garden and is then shipped weekly to Chez Melange to be used,” according to a press release. “Therefore, all of their food items are 'Farm to Table,' and everything served only contains the freshest and most nutritious ingredients.”

Menu items such as its Bouzy burgers, Chilean sea bass “must be served in a timely manner, presented in a certain way and only to be cooked to be eaten immediately after being served straight to your table.”
