This weekend I attended Blog and Tweet Boston’s lunch at Del Frisco’s Grille in Chestnut Hill. There were about twelve other Boston bloggers there and we all had a great time. We received excellent service and the food was fantastic. This location opened in 2013 and is under the ownership of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group and is slightly more casual than Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse in the Seaport that I went to in March.
Once you enter the restaurant and make your way up the staircase made out of Japanese charred wood and steel, you see an eye catching Del Frisco’s Grille sign that instantly provokes the contemporary, yet sophisticated atmosphere. The restaurant has a modern and fun environment with a variety of seating styles including high tops, booths, traditional low tables, and bar seating. Windows up to the ceiling surround every wall letting guests have a view of Hammond Pond Reservation. The menu is seasoned with top quality steaks, plentiful salads, appetizers to share, and creative entrees. They use local and fresh ingredients to create inspirational dishes.
As soon as we arrived to our dining area, we were pleasantly greeted with DF’s signature cocktail, the V.I.P. This drink is made with fresh pineapple juice and clementine vodka which is so good and refreshing. Then we sat down to enjoy a variety of different dishes involving seafood, salads, flatbreads, and steak. Below are some pictures and descriptions of the meals we tried.
