Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar has named Kayla LeBlanc as its new private dining coordinator. Kayla brings a wealth of knowledge to the table for Stanza. With her wide range of experience in the culinary arts, event planning and customer service, she has a keen eye for foolproof planning of events, from intimate dinners to large galas, always exceeding guest expectations.
Kayla knows every event is extremely important and treats them with the attention to detail they deserve, ensuring each party is executed to perfection. She anticipates guest needs, fine-tuning every event, keeping everything running smoothly, within budget, and on schedule.
“I love putting parties and meetings together. The feeling I get when people are excited about what I’ve created for them, it’s unlike any other. It’s just magic,” said LeBlanc. “In a way, it’s like I’m unveiling art to them. It’s a truly beautiful thing to be able to share this with others.”
Kayla started out as a barista, where her love for coffee introduced her to restaurant management. She also managed a small Italian restaurant and operated a bistro and catering service in the Utah State Courts building. Most recently she served as an assistant pastry chef working with Amber Billingsley and Chef Jonathan LeBlanc in the kitchens of Stanza. After she and her husband welcomed their son, Jean‐George, to their family of all boys, she rejoined the staff in January of 2020 as the new private dining coordinator. Kayla enjoys spending time with her family, baking and writing.
