Landmark Bar and Restaurant to Bring Its Signature Flavors to Quinceaneras, Wedding Receptions and Other Special Events in Haltom City, TX

FORT WORTH, TX, March 04, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — If you are a fan of Diners Drive ins and Dives, you may remember the episode that featured one of Guy Fieri’s funkiest finds, a five-star restaurant inside a Conoco Station in Watauga, Texas. It first aired April 6, 2009.

How Chef Point Bar and Restaurant came to be is a good story. Co-owners Paula Nwaeze and Chef Franson Nwaeze couldn’t get a loan to open a restaurant, but they could get their bankers to pony up to open a gas station with a C-store.

They converted part of the store into a restaurant and let Chef Franson work his magic. The food got people talking. Powered by great word of mouth and positive media mentions, Chef Point Bar and Restaurant has continued to grow, opening its second location in Colleyville in 2019.

However, even back when there was only one Chef Point, it did a brisk catering business, powered by Franson’s signature dishes such as duck a l’orange, shrimp alfredo, and lobster mac and cheese and, of course, his made-from-scratch bread pudding.

“I’ve eaten a lot of wonderful food at Chef Point and am delighted that they will be an option for people who choose to host events at Tarrant Event Center in Haltom City,” said TEC Marketing Manager Jennifer Knittel.

“We’re looking forward to catering quinceneras, bridal showers, wedding receptions and other special events and to being part of food truck events at what is sure to become one of the area’s premier party venues,” said Paula Nwaeze.
