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.

Jerry Remy’s

Jerry Remy’s Sport Bar & Grill

Fenway Park

Jerry Remy’s is located on 1265 Boylston St. in Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox.  They serve lunch and dinner all year round and have giant flat screen TVs to catch a game while you eat.  The roof deck, which opened in 2011, has a view of Fenway Park, a retractable roof, patio seating, and a bar.  The roof deck also has an “Alchemy & Science” bar with local craft beer lines available to try.  Jerry Remy’s is a great place to grab a beer or bite to eat after a Red Sox game.

Last week, my sister, Gluten Free Boston Girl, and I had dinner at Jerry Remy’s in Fenway Park. We were invited to try out the new Athlete’s Menu. The Athlete’s Menu was created to appeal to a more diverse group of consumers; it offers options that are gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian, and vegan.  The drink list includes Redbridge gluten-free beer, cider, and “Paleotails”. Below are pictures and descriptions of our dinner.
