~Seaport, Boston, MA~
On Saturday March 1st, I attended my first blogger event with the Blog and Tweet Boston group at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse located in the Seaport in Boston, MA. The restaurant’s vision is to “embody the rich tradition of the classic American steakhouse, with our impeccable chef-driven cuisine, extensive award-winning list and unparalleled hospitality”. When we arrived we were given a choice of two martinis from the Cocktail Menu. Both were very good and refreshing! 1) Signature Martini “The VIP”: Svedka Clementine Vodka Infused With Fresh Hawaiian Pineapple Juice. 2) Pomegranate Martini: 360 Vodka, PAMA Pomegranate Liquor, & Splash Of Cranberry. Lunch at Del Frisco’s was fantastic! Everything we tried was delicious and the service was outstanding. One of my favorite parts was the view. We sat in the Harbor Room with large glass windows so you can see the Boston Harbor. I would definitely go back to Del Frisco’s again.
