Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House Restaurant Review:

This elegant chain steakhouse makes up one-third of The Galleria’s Restaurant Row, nestled between The Oceanaire Seafood Room and Peli Peli. Del Frisco’s draws the city’s social set and power brokers with its steaks, bold wines and deftly made cocktails. The two-story restaurant has a clubby feel with a mahogany bar at the entrance decorated with giant jars of fruit-infused liquors. Service is spot-on, as are the thick slabs of beef for which the steakhouse is renowned. A good way to start a meal is with a bourbon cocktail and the chilled shrimp tasting with three types of shrimp. Lobster tails are succulent and big as Chihuahuas, while a plate of prime lamb boasts two eight-ounce porterhouse chops. Typical steakhouse sides are served family-style. Asparagus with almond slivers is fine, but the potatoes au gratin is better. If possible, leave room for bread pudding with Jack Daniel’s butter sauce. Expect to pay a hefty tab for the decadence, and while the wines are high quality, they also come with a big price tag. A better option is a couple of vodka martinis with blue cheese-stuffed olives. If you’re on a budget, check out the business lunch specials.
