Fort Worth Restaurants - Fine DiningWhat is the difference between fine dining and casual dining? Normally it is the atmosphere, menu and service.
The menu is most important. Fort Worth diners usually select a fine dining restaurant for special occasions. So naturally they don't want to be disappointed by the quality of the food being prepared. The menu can be large or small serving special dishes. Key is the chef uses his creativity in designing the menu to showcase his talents. Chef Point rates at the top for this. The nice added benefit is you don't have to pay fine dining prices to each fine dining food at Chef Point.
Service in a fine dining restaurant is above the normal order taking. It includes such things as escorting customers to the table, holding the chair for women, escorting customers to the restrooms, crumbing the table in between courses and explaining the menu in detail without notes. If you want to pay triple the cost, then you can go to a fancy white table cloth restaurant. But if you want fine dining quality food at casual dining prices, come to Chef Point. They will escort you to your table and explain the menu to you. If you want them to crumb the table or escort you to the restroom you are out of luck.
Atmosphere in a fine dining restaurant includes white linen tablecloths and sometimes a piano player. Music is softly played in the background. The finest in china and crystal is used. At Chef Point, you are paying for the gourmet food, not the atmosphere. Well there is one thing the other fine dining restaurants don't have, that is a gas station. Chef Point is the only fine dining restaurant built inside a gas station. In Fort Worth, we call that unique.
