Thierry Navette, the grandson of a baker, was born in France. He attended Le Touquet’s Hotel and Restaurant program in Northern France. His 3 years studying gave him the opportunity to cook, serve, and study hospitality management.
Thierry began his career in Paris. He started at the Hilton International Hotel, continuing at the Ritz Hotel. He then relocated to Switzerland to become Maitre d’Hotel at the age 21. He obtained the same position for the Prime Minister in Paris and a Relais and Chateaux in the French Alps. He worked for 3 years at the Ocean Pointe Resort in Victoria (British Columbia), and when he moved to the East Coast, he was approach by the Ritz-Carlton Montreal to join as Restaurant Manager.
A friend informed him about a position as Food & Beverage Director at the Stonehedge Inn, Tyngsboro (Massachusetts). He was then the opening General Manager for 3 years of a new restaurant in Boston with an Indian/French-inspired cuisine, Mantra. He opened his own restaurant in New Hampshire called The French Bistro, and kept it open for 3 years before facing trouble with US Immigration.
When he moved back to Quebec, he was hired as Restaurant Manager at Hovey Manor. In January 2008, he decided to take over the Bistro 4 Saisons. The Chef and wait staff from Hovey decided to follow him on his new venture, to provide his guests high quality food and service.
Born and raised in the Eastern Townships, Patrick has always been fascinated by the region’s picturesque landscapes and the delicious cuisine that harmonizes with the rhythms of our four seasons. It is his desire to enrich people’s culinary experience that has led him to pursue the field of sommellerie. He worked for more than 15 years at the Manoir Hovey, where he evolved as a Sommelier and later as a Maître d’Hôtel.
Patrick will delight you with his knowledge and the attentiveness he will offer you, an approach worthy of the standards of Relais et Châteaux. For him, the well-being, the satisfaction and the enjoyment of the guests are the priority. In 2021, the Bistro 4 Saisons has offered him the position of Maître d’Hôtel and Sommelier. This is an opportunity that allows him to work daily with an outstanding team which, we are convinced, will delight you.
