Fort Worth Restaurants - Fine Dining
Mark July 24th on your calendar because that is the day we will have our next Wine & Dine, and what a great event this one is going to be. Instead of having a theme of a different nation, we at Chef Point Café decided to have Texas as our theme. After all, this is the greatest state in the Union, so why not give ourselves a big howdy and celebrate with a fantastic Texas dinner?
This will be a four-course meal with a great wine from Brennan Vineyards accompanying each course. Reservation can be made online or by calling us, and the cost to attend is $65 per person plus tax and gratuity.
So what has Chef Franson planned for this great event? Feast your eyes on this:
- Appetizer: Fresh corn grits topped with wild Texas Shrimp…..served with a Brennan Vineyards Viognier 2012
- Salad: Three Texas cherry tomatoes with sweet onion and grilled fresh corn, sprinkled with basalmic vinegar…..served with a Brennan Austin St. Three White Chicks 2010
- Entrée: Cornish Hen stuffed with wild cherries, cranberries, apples, sweet red onion and rye bread, served on a bed of wild rice.
- Dessert: Texas Peach Cobbler…..served with a Brennan Austin St. Rose 2010
Now admit it, that sounds fantastic, does it not?
So what about those wines? Well, Brennan Vineyards is one of the leading wineries in the State of Texas, producing some excellent varietals just outside of Commanche. As you may know, Texas is the 3rd largest wine-producing state in the nation. The lovely combination of warm days and cool nights makes this area of Texas comparable to Portugal for wine growing. In addition, the constant wind helps to cut down on diseases that normally would haunt a wine harvest.
Although Texas wines are not as famous as California wines, Texas has been producing wines since the 1650’s when Spanish missionaries began planting cabernets and chardonnays. Today over 200 wineries do business in Texas and the production numbers are increasing yearly.
As a special treat, Pat Brennan, wine maker and owner of Brennan Vineyards, will be at this event to discuss wine making and answer any questions you might have.
A classic Texas dinner awaits you on July 24th, prepared by Chef Franson, the Peoples’ Chef! What could be better? Make sure you make your reservations soon as there is limited available seating and you won’t want to miss out. Remember, also, that these special events also benefit the Alzheiemer’s Association; we will donate $10 from each dinner fee, so you will not only be enjoying a great meal and wonderful wines, but also helping in the research and combat of Alzheimer’s Disease.
See you on the 24th!
