Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House Plano

There's so much more than MEATS the eye at the new Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in Plano.

The brand has introduced a number of new menu items and a new menu design at its newest location, a stunner right at the forefront of the $3 billion Legacy West development right off the Dallas North Tollway. 

Fun fact: Del Frisco's was one of the first restaurants I frequented when I first moved to Dallas. The old location near Addison was just a couple of blocks away from my apartment, so I could have been spotted there a couple of times a week, cozied up to the bar to eat dinner. It came to be a place where I knew I could, as a single gal at the time, eat my meal in peace because the staff would always look out for me. I also began to like mushrooms at Del Frisco's, after fighting them 20something years, I relented that they did, indeed, taste mighty fine with my pasta and steak dish.

So as you can tell, Del's and I have a bit of a history, and I have always had a soft spot for their stellar service. The service at the new location is just as you'd expect, attentive and genuine.

Del Frisco's is much more than a steakhouse, with plenty of fresh seafood and inventive menu items plus lots of windows which keep the setting bright during daylight hours, with a more romantic feel as the evening progresses.

Let's talk menu. For starters, the thick cut Nueske's Bacon Au Poivre with a sweet, smoky Bourbon Molasses Glaze might tickle your fancy.

More of a seafood lover? Opt for the Chilled Shrimp Tasting, with three different sauces: traditional Cocktail, Remoulade, and Garlic Marinade. There's also a Hudson Valley Seared Foie Gras, Charred Octopus, and Oysters on the appetizer menu.

Not to mention the well-executed classic Crab Cake, served with a delightful Cajun Lobster Cream sauce for a nice upgrade.

The Green Goddess dressing is a big deal at Del Frisco's. I heard it mentioned no less than 5 different times throughout our media dinner. I think I'll hafta go back for that one on a classic salad, but I was pretty pleased with my "salad" choice, the Heirloom Tomato and Burrata dish. Anytime I can call cheese a salad I'm game. ;) They also serve a Lobster Bisque I'll be checking out soon.

I mentioned above Del Frisco's is much more than a steakhouse. I say that anytime I would actually go and order seafood for my entree'. Case in point the Seared Chilean Seabass, with Crab Fried Rice and a Black Bean Garlic Sauce.

If you prefer a simpler preparation, you might enjoy the Salmon, which you can order "simply prepared". Chicken, Lobster Tail, and an entree-sized portion of the Crab Cakes could also be your meal of choice.

The main attraction at Del Frisco's is, of course, the steak selection. They have introduced a few new steaks in addition to some old favorites. The 45-day Dry-Aged Steaks are a highlight.

The show-stealer is definitely The Double Eagle. This hearty hunk of meat is a 32oz., 45-day dry-aged, double-bone prime ribeye. (Phew, that was a lot of hyphenated words!)  It comes carved tableside, and there's limited availability, so if you get to have one of these, it's quite the celebration.

To accompany your steak, do not miss the Uptown Del's Potato. This classy little dish is a massive stuffed baked potato, filled to the brim with gooey Fontina cheese, then topped with chives and shaved truffles.

The other must-eat side dish is the Creamed Corn with blistered Shishito peppers for a little zing.

Del Frisco's desserts are of the caliber that you're going to want to save a bit of room for them. With so many delicious sweet selections, it's tough to choose just one, but perhaps my favorite is the Butter Cake.

When you're deciding where to go for your next #datenightnokids or special celebration, make a reservation at the new Del Frisco's, where they'll even present you with a snazzy hand-drawn card (scroll down to the end to see mine), in addition to their attentive service and outside-the-box steakhouse fare.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
