Premier Private Dining & Gourmet Meals

“It's more than a restaurant. It's an artful, flavorful experience...”

How is a farm fresh, locally-sourced, hand-crafted restaurant in Southeast Texas not a restaurant?

Chef Monica Cobb’s traditional restaurant has been transformed into an exclusive dinner experience for private dining and curbside meals. Welcome to Monica’s—full of love, life, and adventurous flavor.

“After years of owning and running my beloved restaurant, I‘m taking dinner to another level for a more personal approach; taking chaos out of the kitchen and creating peace. I’ve combined my passions of cooking, creating, and sharing moments with people. It’s a unique, distinct, joyful and artful dinner experience from my heart to yours!”
