Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in Chicago and Del Frisco's Grille in Dallas Named to OpenTable's Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurant List Honor Reflects the Combined Opinions of Over Five Million Reviews Submitted by OpenTable Guests
SOUTHLAKE, Texas, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Del Frisco's Restaurant Group is pleased to announce that two restaurants in its portfolio have been named to OpenTable's Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurant list for 2013 in the United States. Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in Chicago and Del Frisco's Grille in Dallas were honored as part of the prestigious user-generated ranking. Based in Southlake, Texas, near Dallas, Del Frisco's Restaurant Group is a collection of more than 30 restaurants located across the country, including Del Frisco's Grille, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, and Sullivan's Steakhouse.
OpenTable is the leading provider of free, real-time online restaurant reservations for diners and reservation and guest management solutions for restaurants. The OpenTable Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurant list is a result of the collective opinions of more than five million reviews submitted by verified OpenTable guests for more than 15,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The list is part of OpenTable's Diners' Choice ratings, which are compilations of member reviews organized into "Best Of" lists. Diners' Choice ratings only use feedback from guests who were "seated" for their reservation (as opposed to those who didn't show), and the data is continuously refreshed for unbiased feedback.
"Having two restaurants earn a place on OpenTable's Top 100 Hot Spot list is an incredible honor for the entire Del Frisco's Restaurant Group family," said Mark S. Mednansky, CEO of Del Frisco's Restaurant Group. "The United States is home to many top-notch dining destinations, and receiving this positive feedback from real guests gives our team great validation and pushes us to continue to provide the absolute best guest experience at all of our restaurants."
Located in the heart of the Gold Coast neighborhood, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in Chicago occupies three floors of the former Esquire Theater. The restaurant, which opened in December 2012, features stunning interiors that preserve the landmark theater's historic architectural elements while offering a modern yet inviting environment. One of the largest steakhouses in Chicago, Del Frisco's serves up flawless cuisine that's bold and delicious, accompanied by an extensive, award-winning wine list by Wine Director David O'Day and a level of service that reminds guests that they're the boss. Executive Chef Jim Teutemacher and Chef de Cuisine Anthony Reyes lead a culinary team known for its prime steak, fresh seafood, house-made side dishes and decadent desserts. Steaks at Del Frisco's are provided exclusively by Stock Yards in Chicago. Del Frisco's features USDA prime, the top 2 - 3 percent of all meat in the US market.
Favorite dishes at Del Frisco's Chicago include the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, packed with jumbo lump crab—always baked, never fried – and finished with a Cajun Lobster Sauce; the 22-ounce Bone-In Prime Rib Eye; and the 32-ounce Wagyu "Longbone" Ribeye – also known as "The Tomahawk." Side dishes most in demand include the rich Mac 'n' Cheese and the Maque Choux Corn, which is shucked fresh every night and cooked al dente with Tasso Ham. For dessert, the scene-stealer at Del Frisco's is the signature Lemon Doberge – a memorable, towering six-layer confection made from scratch daily and frosted with three different icings. Del Frisco's is located at 58 East Oak Street in Chicago. For more information, please visit delfriscos.com or call (312) 888-2499.
