Al Biernat’s hosted the World Series Championship team at their Oak Lawn location on the evening of Friday, November 3, 2023. Among the 200 guests included the Texas Rangers team and their families and Texas Rangers ownership.
Long-time loyal Al Biernat’s guest, Neil Leibman, co-owner of the Texas Rangers, often remarked to steakhouse owner Al Biernat, that if the team ever won the World Series, he would bring the team to come celebrate the big win at Al’s restaurant. After a historic win in Game 5 of the 2023 World Series on November 2, the Texas Rangers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks to secure the title for the first time in the franchise’s 63-season history.
Leibman called up one of his favorite Dallas restaurants to stay true to his word after the win and brought over 200 people including the players and their significant others to Al Biernat’s Oak Lawn after the Victory Parade earlier that day in Arlington.
Guests enjoyed different luxury food stations throughout the restaurant including a chilled seafood station with Lobster, Crab and Caviar, a fish station with Chilean Sea Bass and Alaskan Halibut Lobster Risotto, carving stations with A5 Japanese Wagyu New York Strip, Ribeye, and Prime Rib with house made steak sauces and delicious sides. There were also passed appetizers of Smoked Salmon Canapes Beef Wellington Bites Deviled Eggs, Crab Cakes, and Lobster Flautas Caprese Skewers, and bite sized desserts including Al’s Famous Coconut Cream Pie along with other sweet options.
Guests sipped on champagne from large format bottles and other rare and high-end bar selections. There were two specialty cocktail martinis, The MVP and the Go and Take It, with the Texas Ranger “T” and the Rangers’ World Series Champions logo branded on the top of each.
