If you are looking to treat yourself to a culinary delight, look no further than Del Frisco’s Grille, nestled across the street from the famed Rockefeller Center. With a welcoming interior that is spaciously elegantly, yet comfortably designed, you feel at ease to have the perfect dinning experience. There is a cosy bar, and a patio area to people watch or see the tree at Christmas time.

Starting off with cocktails, I highly recommend the The “VIP” Infused Sweet Hawaiian Pineapple in Svedka Clementine Vodka ( $16), as well as the Apt 5D ($16) which starts with Tito’s Vodka Strawberry, fresh lemon sour, simple surfy and a dash balsamic. The good news here is, if you are Gluten Free this is the cocktail for you. Del Frisco’s will also cater to you Gluten Free allergies.

The Cheesesteak Eggrolls

A lot of the menu contains creative twists on classic American comfort foods, so for appetizers my guest and I started off The Cheesesteak Eggrolls ($16.50) drizzled with sweet and spicy chili sauce, combined with honey mustard. These satisfying mouthfuls, had my guest thrilled and she could not stop raving about them. We also had the Fire Rosted Artichoke ($16.50) in a Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette with a Parmesan-Black Pepper Aioli dipping sauce. The artichoke was tender and pleasingly refreshing. Normally I am not a sauce person with artichokes, but the dipping sauce was perfection.

The Steakhouse Salad

The Steakhouse Salad ($27) is a splendid lunch entree. My guest and I split the Sliced Prime Steak, Deviled Egg, Baby Mixed Greens, Avocado, Hickory-Smoked Bacon and Crumbles, topped with Parmesan in a light Lemon Horseradish Dressing and found this to be a must have item before the theatre or the classic business lunch.

We began our entree’s with another “signature” dish of Prime Beef Short-Rib Stroganoff ($36.50) with pappardelle in a luscious sour cream-mushroom sauce, with hints of Cognac, topped with friend onions. This was also a hit with my guest. Del Frisco’s Prime Ribeye 16 oz ($45.50) was perfectly done, but comes alone, so order the heavenly Truffled Mac and Cheese ($12). This is now on my list of the best Mac and Cheese dishes in New York. Light, not too cheesy or heavy makes this a winner.

Check out the extensive wine list, where if you are celebrating you will find a bottle of Chateau Latour ($1,235), but there are many more selections much more reasonable.

Dessert for me always makes or breaks a restaurant. The lemon doberge cake ($12.50) is 6  layer sponge cake with lemon filling and glaze with a generous lemon buttercream icing, but the punch of the lemon needs to be kicked up a notch. But it was the special dessert a Creme Brule Cheesecake (12.50), which was so decadent we were left in complete satisfaction. This sinful concoction was worth the whole night.

Our waiter AC could not have been more accommodating and knowledgeable. He helped make our night a success, especially when he made me a Iced Cappuccino that finished the meal off in a blissful state.

Del Frisco’s Grille was a find that readers in California, Texas, NJ, Tennessee and Washington can also enjoy. Also check out Del Frisco Grille’s newest location at 250 Vesey Street in Lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City.
