If you’ve been to Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse then you know those deliciously seasoned steaks seared to perfection like the back of your hand. Now it’s time to meet its sibling—Del Frisco’s Grille. The more casual counterpart of the big steakhouse chain will be opening a location in Chestnut Hill, Mass. next year. Impatient as we Bostonians are, we decided to visit the New York City property recently to see what the brand is all about.
 Rockefeller Center

Located in the heart of Rockefeller Center, the restaurant seems to cater to a more casual crowd with a menu that focuses on hearty salads, wood-oven baked flatbreads, sandwiches, burgers and comfort food dishes. But you can still find the same prime steak and seafood Del Frisco’s is so well known for. When you first walk in, belly on up to the spacious bar with polished brass bar top that pays homage to the 1930’s Art Deco. Here you can order up some small plates while watching flatbreads being baked in the urban style wood-burning oven that has accents of white subway tile.

Be sure to start off your visit here with a sampling of jumbo, and we do mean HUGE shrimp cocktail served with a side of spicy cocktail sauce. We loved the prosciutto di parma flatbread pizza topped with fresh arugula, mozzarella and truffle extra virgin oil. Pair it up with a bottle of Del Frisco’s 2009 cabernet from Sonoma. Moving right along, we couldn’t get enough of the tender veal meatloaf served with a side of creamy mashed potatoes, wild mushrooms and topped with a rich Bordelaise sauce. The prime beef short rib stroganoff was just as good – a generous portion served atop al dente pappardelle noodles.

Even if you come here for lunch like we did, be sure to save room for dessert. We recommend either the Nutella bread pudding or pineapple upside down cake. You’ll be glad you did. Del Frisco’s Grille is located at 60 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
