Last week we told you about the end of Breezy’s Cafe in its location at 1200 Point Breeze Ave. Breezy’s has a new location lined up, as does their former Point Breeze commercial space.
A new BYO American bistro called On Point will be bringing brunch and dinner options to this corner, likely by the end of summer. Owners Juan and Mallory Lopez are both experienced in the industry, mostly from working at Jose Garces restaurants.
More from Eater:
Once they sign the lease in May, construction will start. The Lopezes plan to turn the once counter-service cafe into a full-service restaurant. Gone will be the long counter splitting the room in two, opening up space for around 45 seats. Add a walk-in refrigerator and new flooring (among other cosmetic modifications), and the couple will be looking at a full-fledged restaurant by summer’s end.
On Point is proposed to be a family-friendly restaurant, with an all-American brunch menu (think omelettes, pancakes, waffles, french toast, “kind of like Sabrina’s”) served six days a week. A “more refined, but still family-friendly” dinner service will be offered four days a week, an avenue for Juan to really show off his cooking chops.
