Nights on the town are better when shared at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in Dallas

By LYNN MARIE
 
Everything at Del Frisco's is above and beyond the normal fine experience.   The famous steakhouse planted its roots in Dallas more than twenty years ago.  

This establishment serves up a flawless chef-driven cuisine that's bold and delicious; an extensive award-winning wine list and a level of service that reminds guests that they're the boss.  

They create a seamless dining experience for the savvy business and leisure traveler who regularly dine or entertain away from home. 

The bread is house-baked, sesame-studded, served warm,  with butter, and good.  Actually it's wickedly awesome.  

The Shellfish Plateau is one of the restaurant's most popular appetizers and on the night I sampled it; it consisted of Alaskan King Crab legs, jumbo shrimp, oysters on the 1/2 shell, and a salad of jumbo lump crab meat, avacado, basil aioli, and maine lobster (knuckle, claw, and tail).

An appetizer not to be missed!  The salad is an Heirloom Tomato Stack, with Italian style Mozzarella, garlic ranch dressing, basil pesto, and apple wood smoked bacon crumbles.  All this on a bed of fresh field greens with a balsamic vinegaret drizzle.

Steaks?  It doesn't get any better than this.  They offer a nice filet which consists of  3 (4 oz) medallions with an Oscar style (bernaise, crab meat and asparagus), Santa Fe Peppercorn Cream, and a carmalized garlic, jalapeno, bacon butter.  I still can't decide which one is my favorite. 

The Crab Cakes with the cajun lobster sauce, was extraordinary.  There's just no filler at all, you have a mound of seasoned crab meat which really reveals the seafood favor. 
 
I would also recommend the 2010 Del Frisco's Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which is made exclusively for Del Frisco's by Robert Foley.  He's a two time wine maker of the year by Wine Spectator.

The Pinot Grigio that I enjoyed was the 2011 Pighin which is Italian from Graves.  Very crisp with flavors of pear and aromas of flower and chamomile.  The wine list is vast and a real attraction for well-heeled wine lovers, as Del Frisco's has collected multiple vintages of famous (and some just well-known) reds from around the world.

 he Sommelier was very knowledge and provided in-depth information regarding not only the wines we enjoyed but many of the others the restaurant serves.  The restaurant has been awarded the wine Spectator's Award of Excellence from 2000-2010.  The wine list spans the globe with over 1400 selections to choose from.

Del Frisco's offers a wide variety of choices that appeal to evry palate from the adventurous to the traditional.  It boasts an elegant atmosphere perfectly complimented with southern style hospitality.

They have eight separate dining areas and can accommodate most any size private dining request. 

Del Fisco's Grille is the newest offering from Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, which is based in Southlake, Texas.  Last but not least you have to try the "Del's Delight."  It is to die for!  Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream, Dark Creme de Cacao, and Nocello (walnut Liqueur); it truly is a milk shake for adults.
