In both design and decor, Del Friscoâ€™s GrilleÂ evokes an atmosphere of rustic, masculine comfort with reclaimed woods, comfortable chairs, and Southern upscale charm.Â The restaurantÂ serves chef-inspired American classics and hand-crafted cocktails. Whether youâ€™re digging into dishes in theÂ main dining room or dining al fresco on theÂ gorgeous urban courtyard overlooking Maryland Way Park, Del Friscoâ€™s Grille isÂ devoted to the excellence and promise of freshÂ ingredients.
Service is another area in which this new place definitely excels. On both of our visits, servers were knowledgeable about the food and skilled at providing informed attention without cloying familiarity or bothersome hovering. TheÂ team members are obviously well-trained hospitality professionals, the kind of individuals to take note of and ask for specifically on return visits like server and musicianÂ Canaan Cox.
Iâ€™d recommend starting the meal with something light, such as the heirloom tomato and burrata salad. Salads areÂ well-executed and a terrific. (I keep telling myself itâ€™s good for me.)
Entrees didnâ€™t disappoint either. For our entrÃ©e, we decided to share the prime beef short rib stroganoffÂ featured on the menu. This was an enormously satisfying dish. The super-slow cooking method transformed the sometimes tough cut of beefÂ into an almost silky mouthful. The pappardelle noodlesÂ were hearty and cooked perfect. The sour cream and tobacco onionsÂ provided a nice lightness to this otherwise heavy dish. At $28.50, this dish was a fine-dining bargain.
One of the best main courses was parmesan lemon soleÂ sporting a beautiful golden-brown crust. Served with buttery crab, sun-dried tomatoes,Â and arugula saladÂ on chive lemonÂ butter sauce, itâ€™s well-priced at $29.50. In fact, the pricing at Del Friscoâ€™sÂ is refreshingly affordable.
The desserts are all intricate wonders of bakingÂ techniques and deconstructed presentations. Tasty and technically impressive, it was a great way to round out the meal.
The service and dining rituals at Del Friscoâ€™sÂ Grille were pleasantly ceremonious. Each dish arrived with its own utensils, and empty dishes were swept away like magic.Â A refined and romantic atmosphere, excellent service, and sophisticated, serious cooking with a creative bent, and a sly sense of fun make it clear why itâ€™s such a favorite with its loyal customers.
