Fort Worth Restaurants - Fine DiningWho would have ever thought of getting that fine dining experience in an Italian restaurant based in a gas station? Well in Fort Worth, actually Watauga, Texas, that's exactly what diners can look forward to. Stepping into the establishment, the surroundings may not immediately transport customers to the old country but once they bite into the incredible eats, they'll remember why they came.

Soups can include many ingredients and may have various consistencies: hearty, creamy, light, chunky and the list goes on. They are a perfect beginning to a meal because they are not too filling. When indulging in a fine dining outing, never neglect the soup because that can be one of the highlights. With creamy spinach mixed into the Florentine Tomato Soup, Chef Point Café offers a delightful take on an old favorite. The Cioppino Soup is an Italian fisherman's stew that is simply to good to pass up. This soup has graced the pages of regional as well as national publications for obvious reasons.
What fine dining restaurant is not complete without a beautiful salad to start the meal off right? The Chef Point Café does not fall short in this area either. The Spring Mix Salad is available in two sizes and is topped with a sliced tomato and onions. Many folks couldn't consider eating at an Italian restaurant if there was no Caesar salad and they won't be let down. Patrons can add chicken, shrimp or salmon to their Caesar salads for extra flavor and protein. Dinner salads include the Mediterranean Chicken Salad and the Open Faced Chicken Salad, both of which have old world touches like feta cheese, fresh sliced mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil or basil.
So what about the pasta? Most Italian restaurants offer a choice selection of fresh pasta dishes and Chef Point Café is no different. Veggie lovers can choose from the Eggplant Parmesan, Pasta Primavera and Angel Hair Pasta. Poultry pickers can choose from several dishes like the Duck that includes a slowly roasted half duck served over angel hair pasta, topped with Chef's special orange sauce. Meat lovers can partake in the specialty dishes like the Blackened Pork Chop, which is hand stuffed with pepper jack cheese and fresh crabmeat, smothered in Asiago sauce then served over angel hair pasta. Traditional favorites reign here as well like Beef Lasagna, Fettuccine Alfredo and Baked Ziti. So many delicious dishes, so little time.
