Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House Relocating to Uptown Dallas’ Epicenter in 2016
Dallas, Texas – (October 30, 2014)- Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (DFRG), announced today it will open its fourth Del Frisco’s Grille in North Texas at The Shops at Legacy in Plano, Texas, in summer 2015. The company also announced it will relocate its Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House from North Dallas to McKinney & Olive in Dallas’ Uptown, as part of the luxury, 20-story, 530,000-square-foot office and retail tower designed by famed architect Cesar Pelli, next to The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences, in 2016.
“Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House is the perfect fit for McKinney & Olive because it has a stellar reputation, amazing service and terrific food,” said John Zogg, managing director for Crescent Real Estate Equities, LLC. “This flagship restaurant – featuring a two-story design with spacious patios and huge glass windows overlooking the plaza – will be in keeping with Uptown’s energetic, street-friendly vibe.”
Since Del Frisco’s Grille’s Dallas debut in December 2011 on historic and trendy McKinney Avenue in Uptown, they have opened 15 locations in top cultural districts from Santa Monica’s Pier to New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Del Frisco’s Grille will offer a stylish and fun dining experience to the already vibrant destination with its inviting and alluring atmosphere offering creative twists on classic comfort food with fresh regional ingredients and local flair. Del Frisco’s Grille offers every day dining and weekend brunch with sharable sides like crowd-favorites Cheesesteak Egg Rolls and Ahi Tacos, fresh salads, burgers, sandwiches, prime steaks and fresh seafood, handcrafted cocktails, decadent desserts, craft beers and an eclectic wine list.
The Del Frisco’s Grille at The Shops of Legacy in Plano will seat over 200 guests with indoor and outdoor seating. It will be the fourth Grille in the North Texas market.
“Following the incredible opening of Del Frisco’s Grille at Southlake Town Square last year, we are thrilled that Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group has selected another Retail Properties of America (RPAI) center for their newest location,” said Jason Kasal, vice president and senior leasing director, south region. “This operator (DFRG), and their Grille concept, is a perfect fit for The Shops at Legacy.”
The new Del Frisco’s Grille is only one item on a list of exciting changes to come. The Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in North Dallas, on Spring Valley Road and the Dallas North Tollway, which opened in 1994, will be moving to the epicenter of Uptown and Downtown Dallas. In 2016, you can expect to enjoy the same rich heritage and tradition of Del Frisco’s high quality steaks and fresh seafood, warm, genuine hospitality, and excellent service while enjoying sweeping views of Uptown’s business, luxury shopping, arts and entertainment district and outdoor piazza.
An attractive outdoor feature of McKinney & Olive will be a one-acre gathering space designed by Jim Burnett, landscape architect of Klyde Warren Park.
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House Dallas will continue to serve guests as it has proudly for 20 years from its current location in North Dallas until the new restaurant is completed in 2016.
Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group’s CEO Mark S. Mednansky said, “Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group loves making its home in North Texas. We are invested in these communities and the guests we serve from a social, business and philanthropic standpoint. It’s these guests over many years that have it made it possible to keep growing and expanding the brand today. The move from North Dallas to Uptown for the Double Eagle is all about evolving the brand and showcasing more options and modern amenities while still sticking to the concept’s rich heritage and tradition.”
