This Mother’s Day, Fort Worth restaurant, Chef Point Cafe, is giving moms a real treat with a special menu devoted to this holiday. This day, dedicated to matriarchs, is for enjoying family and what better way to do that then with a fabulous meal in a fine dining restaurant renowned for world-class cuisine? Find out what Mother’s Day means, then see how dining together over a special feast celebrates each doting mother who went above and beyond her maternal duties.
The tradition of honoring mothers on a particular day is traced back to ancient Grecian times. Modern etiquette still insists we honor those who gave us life. Children make chotskies for moms in school, husbands buy flowers for mothers of their children and cards are sent out around the world just to commemorate this occasion. In today’s age of hectic schedules, it may be nice to give the gift of time and good food as anyone can appreciate this amazing combination. “There’s nothing like a nice sit down meal to bring a family together,” says Paula Nwaeze, co-owner of Chef Point Cafe. What mom wouldn’t be impressed with this special menu when walking into her favorite Fort Worth restaurant?
The appetizers are the first things that say “Happy Mother’s Day,” on this special menu. No matter what her tastes, mom is bound to fall for What Nots, Escargot or Fried Green Tomatoes. These starters vary widely in flavor to please family members who do not share similar tastes. The quintessential southern mother may enjoy Fried Green Tomatoes. This modern take on an old favorite is served with fresh mozzarella, pesto sauce, roasted peppers, micro greens and drizzled with Texas honey. For the more refined mother, Escargot may be just the trick. The imported Escargot are hand stuffed in large mushroom caps then smothered in a house sherry wine sauce.
Mom can then order a salad or soup (or both, it is Mother’s Day) before heading on to the next scrumptious stage of the meal, the entree. Patrons can choose between nine spectacular selections for the main dish at this Fort Worth restaurant. Seafood fans can choose from Stuffed Flounder, Pecan Crusted Mahi Mahi, Stuffed Swordfish and Whole Snapper from this special menu. For moms who are crazy for nuts, they can try the Pecan Crusted Mahi Mahi, which is sauteed to perfection then served over fettuccini with a lemon caper butter sauce. Beef loving moms can order the Blackened Rib Eye, which is 16 ounces of prime beef served with mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus. For those who can’t decide between the surf or turf, they can order the Steak and Lobster Tail. This entree features a beef tenderloin and lobster tail served with au jus sauce, mashed potatoes, fresh asparagus and side of drum butter. Poultry lovers can try the Chicken Provolone or the Duck that taste even better than they smell.
After chowing down on this incredible dinner, let mom order dessert. Chef Nwaeze’s own Bread Pudding and Chocolate Mousse are wonderful ways to end a meal, even if mother didn’t eat all of her veggies. Mother’s Day is a time to unwind and remember times that went by all too fast. Paula and Franson’s daughter, Hope, who helps out at the restaurant when she can, says, “I can’t think of a better way to spend Mother’s Day than working with my mom and eating dinner at our fine dining restaurant.”
