Point Breeze Spotlight: Meet Juan Lopez & Mallory Fix-Lopez of On Point Bistro
One of Night Market Philadelphia's main goals is to support the immigrant business owners who make our city's mobile food scene so delicious. For a second year in a row, we are highlighting local food entrepreneurs in this season's lineup!
Juan Lopez was first offered the On Point Bistro restaurant space back in 2013. While owning his own business had always been his dream, he declined the proposition, feeling like it just wasn't the right time. Fortunately, the space was up for sale again three years later, and this time, he jumped at the opportunity.
On Point Bistro has now been open for two years, serving up American bistro eats with a Mexican flair. The restaurant's cuisine represents Juan's experience in the American restaurant industry after moving to Philadelphia in 2009, while his upbringing in Southern Puebla shines through in several dishes.
Juan and his wife, Mallory, whom he met while working for Jose Garces, run the kitchen and operate all things back-of-house, while Mallory's sister and her husband take care of the front, welcoming all who step through their doors. The neighborhood has changed quite a bit over the years, but Juan and Mallory still try to get to know all of their customers, both Point Breeze natives and new arrivals alike. "We believe in this neighborhood," said the couple, who live just blocks away from the restaurant with their son.
Visit Juan and Mallory at 1200 Point Breeze Ave. and at Night Market Point Breeze on October 4! Their favorite dish? Can't decide! "It's like choosing a favorite child."
Guess you'll just have to try everything on the menu.
Night Market Philadelphia and Community Engagement
Since its launch in 2010, Night Market has provided a platform for local food entrepreneurs to start or grow their businesses, while bringing people together in neighborhoods around local food and culture. To build on these activities, The Food Trust has begun to provide community forums at Night Market to create vibrant spaces for Philadelphians--long-time residents and newcomers alike--to share their perspectives on issues of local importance.
The Food Trust’s efforts to spur civic engagement and lift up local food entrepreneurs, especially those owned and operated by immigrants, are supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. In Philadelphia, Knight Foundation works to promote inclusion; foster vibrant, connected communities; and invite people to participate in civic life. With Knight Foundation support, The Food Trust is working to infuse Night Market events with fun and innovative ways to deepen connections across the city’s increasingly diverse neighborhoods and create economic opportunities for new residents.
Thanks to our 2018 sponsors so far!
