Sometimes you experience an establishment where everything is always perfect; you have no want or need to move onto another destination for it suits the two of you time and time again. The restaurant we recommend this week for you to make your “spot” is Del Frisco’s Grille at 3232 McKinney Avenue in Dallas. When you get the right combination of quality, ambiance, and service… why go anywhere else? A couple should always have one special location they mutually love and trust that they will be pleased with again and again.
When you step into Del Frisco’s Grille, you get everything you pay for and then some. While meeting the budget of this column, you can still experience a great evening with superior product and service. Many times couples brush off or delay visits to great restaurants because they have the mindset they cannot afford to go. With a little help below, we should be able to show you how you can make just about any of your favorite restaurants your “spot.”
Conventional wisdom states you should get a red wine with your meal, and you have by the glass options available, but try the following drinks should you be feeling adventurous.
Particularly refreshing and with the right hint of spice, the Kilt Lifter with Hendrick’s Gin, St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Splash of Tabasco, and a Squeeze of Lemon for $11 is a great choice.
This time of year you should also order a Seasonal Tennessee Peach with Jack Daniels, Fresh Tennessee Peaches, Honey, and Fresh Lime Juice for $11. The Tennessee Peach is just the right amount of sweet in a craft cocktail.
Great for sharing, you must be sure to order the Cheesesteak Egg Rolls. With juicy shredded steak, cheese, fresh veggies, and a perfectly fried exterior, the cheesesteak egg rolls are a hidden gem on this menu. With its superior sweet chili dipping sauce and drizzle of honey mustard, you have to try these immediately for $10.50.
While Del Frisco’s Filet is outstanding, the New York Strip Steak is huge and full of tremendous flavor. The choice cut 14oz Prime New York Strip is $39 and served with a loaded potato cake.
Order the extra cheesy and smoky Chipotle Three Cheese Mac for $8.50. This southern comfort food with a chipotle twist is a great side to share and will be sure to please.
With your drinks, appetizer, large entree, and side, the two of you will have had a wonderfully delicious and filling taste of the Del Frisco’s menu for $100 including minimum 20% tip.
Until next week, enjoy!
