On Point Bistro keeps focus on good breakfast food and family
Under the tutelage of Chef Jose Garces, Chef Juan Lopez Fernandez is putting his cooking chops to use at his breakfast, lunch spot On Point Bistro.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Chef Juan Lopez Fernandez began a longstanding working relationship with Iron Chef Jose Garces when he was just 18 years old and new to Philadelphia from Mexico.

Chef Juan proceeded to build an impressive career in fine dining over the next 20 years.

But when it was time to open his own spot, he chose to limit offerings to breakfast, lunch and brunch so that he could spend quality time with his growing family.

Now, Chef Juan is a chef-in-residence with the Garces program at Volver in the Kimmel Center.

Through February 12, Chef Juan's dinner creations will be on the menu there, which he says a great opportunity to return to his fine dining roots while keeping his dayside cooking - and family time - going strong as well.
