Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House Restaurant Review

: This Dallas import feels like a longtime New York establishment. The 450-seat interior is usually packed with suits and the staff seems to manage it all quite gracefully. The menu doesn't have very many surprises, but everything is well executed. The crab cake wades in lobster sauce and is fortunately free of filler. A plump, fire-roasted artichoke with bright Meyer lemon vinaigrette is another prelude to hearty entrées. Beef at Del Frisco's is served nicely charred on the outside and rare within; the flavor is rich but the texture is a bit mushy. Choose from classic cuts like New York strip, filet mignon and prime rib-eye. Other main courses are Australian lobster tails and a mesquite smoked pork chop. The kitchen makes an effort to jazz up regular sides of creamed spinach with bacon and some diverse seasonings. Tasty skillet potatoes are almost as thin as potato chips and topped with pan-fried onions. Asparagus, charred lemon broccolini and sautéed mushrooms are healthier savory options. The impressive globe-spanning wine list proposes several great vintages (including from Château Latour and Château Mouton Rothschild). End the meal with Nutella bread pudding with coffee ice cream and caramel sauce.
