Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Local celebrities and sports figures frequent this swanky Texas import fashioned with darkly stained wood, deep-green fabrics and ambient lighting.

Food & Drinks: The food is traditional steakhouse fare and the portions are huge. Begin with the oysters (on the half-shell or fried). Then, when it comes to the steaks, no matter which cut you choose --- 12-ounce filet mignon, 16-ounce rib-eye, 24-ounce porterhouse --- each is simply dusted with herbed salt and pepper before grilling. They arrive still sizzling, juicy and grilled to your specifications. À la carte sides include château potatoes (mashed with bacon) and sautéed mushrooms. Non-meat-eaters take heart: Australian cold-water lobster tails, served with drawn butter and a golden crust, are outstanding. The notable wine list is reasonably priced and understandably tilted toward hearty reds. Sometimes we linger in the comfortable chairs of the cigar room, enjoying something from the extensive port and Cognac list and an after-dinner smoke from the more than 40 cigars on the menu, but never before indulging in dessert. The lemon doberge cake --- fluffy cake layered with tangy lemon filling --- is a must. Service is polished and not overly familiar.
