Lunch At Del Frisco's

A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to eat lunch at Del Frisco's during a Blog and Tweet Boston event.  Why would a gal who doesn't eat steak or fish go to a restaurant the primarily serves just that?  Well to hang out with my bloggy besties of course!  Also they do serve one of my very favorite martinis and I'm never one to pass up a free drink!

We got to sample The VIP (yellow martini above) which has Svedka Clementine Vodka infused with fresh Hawaiian pineapple and the Pomegranate Martini which has 360 Vodka, PAMA Pomegranate liquor and a splash of cranberry.  Both were very good but like I said The VIP is delicious!

We also got to try their signature red wine which is bottled just for Del Frisco's. It was good and I'm sure it pairs well with the steak!


My photos in this post are not in the order that the food arrived.  Let's just say the food started and kept on coming. . . there was A LOT of food and portions were VERY generous.  Everyone was so full including me despite not sampling a lot of the dishes (since I don't eat steak and fish).  The side dishes were SO good.  Those mashed potatoes - OMG!

Everything that came out looked beautiful.  Presentation was lovely and all the food was steaming hot.  I don't know about you but I hate luke warm food at restaurants.
 
Now let's talk about those onion rings. . . again A+ for presentation.  I've never seen them served like that.  Oh and leave it to me to knock them over while trying to sample one! Classy!!

I didn't take photos of all the steaks but there were many.  I think they sampled every one that was on the menu and that was after eating a ton of food (again not all pictured here b/c I got tired of taking pics).  Everyone was raving about the steak!

It seemed like the crowd favorite was the crab cake.  So if you go try it. . . Blogger recommended.  Ha!

Don't worry we saved room for dessert - kind of.  The lemon cake was as big as my head.  That is the actual serving size when you order it at the restaurant.  I will admit I was hoping for something chocolate but this was SO good.  The frosting was sweet, lemony and delicious. 

It was fun hanging out with Emily and the rest of the bloggers.  Oh and since Del Frisco's is on the waterfront we enjoyed great views of the Boston Harbor! 

So even though I don't eat steak or fish I would still go here again.  Everything I tried was delicious.  Let's face it. . . I'm going back for the drink!

The service was excellent and the manager personally welcomed us and thanked us for coming - we should have been thanking him for all of the free food he gave us!  Del Frisco's is all over the country so if you have one near you check it out next time you are in the mood for a good steak!



Our lunch was complimentary as part of this Blog and Tweet Boston event but all opinions are my own.
