When you step into Perry’s Steakhouse in Grapevine, you’re stepping into a haven of effortless luxury. Every detail is designed to make your lunch, Happy Hour, or dinner one to remember. Curved leather booths are the perfect spot for your upcoming Valentine’s Day romantic dinner, or book one of their private dining options for up to 100 for your next celebration. The dining room at Perry’s is designed with an open view into the kitchen, so no matter where you sit you’re able to peek into the kitchen to see the special dishes they’re cooking up for you.
Calling your first bites starters seems unfair to these plates of perfection. Start your night with jumbo lump crab cakes topped with potato haystacks, made with perfectly fresh crab that will have you thinking you were in Maine rather than the middle of the Dallas metroplex.
Your next plate might be the night’s winner. Perry’s famous 7-finger pork chop is delicious, and they have added a dish available exclusively at Bar 79, Perry’s bar area. The Pork Chop Bites are mini versions of the delicious chop, caramelized on all sides and served with a house made savory applesauce. (full version of Pork Chop shown in cover photo)
For your entree, order the Chateaubriand, carved table-side with truffle merlot demi glace, bearnaise, and peppercorn reduction sauces - served with asparagus.
Tip: order your asparagus “Captain style” to get your asparagus fried and topped with lump crab, because even the vegetables at Perry’s feel like a celebration.
To round out the night enjoy Perry’s housemade take on a KitKat bar, Chocolate Crunch.
French pastry, chocolate ganache, and crunch milk chocolate are topped with homemade whipped cream, peanut brittle, and toffee.
Perry’s will add a classic, upscale spin to Grapevine’s bustling dining scene, perfect for your next special night, or any night that you want to feel a little more special.
