From our family to yours
John & Rachel Foster began their vision of Moni's in 2014. Rachel, classically trained in French cuisine, saw an opportunity to grow her skills. John saw an opportunity to learn more about the world of business.
Chef Rachel is depicted in the Moni's OKC kitchen in the painting by renown OKC Artist K. M. Walizer.
The first few years were a learning experience. John and Chef Rachel started with a staff of 7 and hit the ground running. Chef Rachel adopted the motto of "better, every day." The Fosters worked on "4 pillars" as the staff grew: excellence, communication, flexibility, and teamwork. As sales started to climb, media attention grew, and wait times on busy nights grew to be hours instead of minutes. The Fosters decided that expansion was the next step.
Moni's now seats up to 180 guests and has a full bar, patio, Chef's Table, and robust carry-out business. Chef Rachel continues to hone her craft and train her staff in the kitchen while John handles service and business management. With a talented and growing team of leaders, the Fosters are pursuing excellence in every aspect of Moni's. Don't be surprised when you notice improvements on your next visit, we aim to surprise and delight in every visit.
We hope to cook for you soon,
