Restaurant Recap: January

We had a handful of delicious restaurant experiences lately and here's a recap of some of the wonderful meals we hope you get the opportunity to try out!


The holiday season is all about fun, festive recipes and cocktails at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. Throughout the month of December, guests enjoyed off menu items including the delectable butter cake and bacon manhattan – yum! For an extra kick to your cocktails, Del Frisco also offered many holiday-inspired drinks, including:
  • White Chocolate Candy Cane Martini
  • Chocolate Eggnog Martini
  • Eggnog Martini
Patrick and I had a chance to visit the Chicago location in between Christmas and New Year's - what a fun time! We rang in the New Year early with Del Frisco’s specially priced, celebratory menu items including a Surf and Turf Special featuring an 8oz Filet Mignon served alongside a lobster tail. But for January, the Chicago location will be celebrating 'Restaurant Week' from January 22nd through February 4th. Del Friso's willbe showcasing a variety of their signature dishes paired with their highly attentive hospitality - Three Course Dinner ($44) and Two Course Lunch ($22):
But you don't have to wait to enjoy what Del Frisco's has to offer and you don't even have to be in Chicago, as they have several national locations throughout the country. 'Prime Pair Sundays' is offered where you can enjoy the Prime Pair, Del Frisco's $55 prix fixe menu. A perfectly prepared 8oz filet paired with your choice of succulent crab cake, scallops or shrimp, plus a salad and side for just $55. It all pairs perfectly with interesting company, your favorite wine and an appreciation for the finer meals in life!

We look forward to going back and checking out the Restaurant Week promotion soon and even visit on a lazy Sunday for their Prime Pair prix fixe menu too! You can check out other promotions offered at the other 12 local Del Frisco's Steakhouse here.




Another restaurant we visited recently for lunch was Ted's Montana GrillWith the New Year, we made it our resolution to eat adventurous. Ted's Montana Grill is our favorite place for bison, which is not just an adventurous, sweet, juicy, tender and delectable meat, but we enjoy the health benefits of the lean, nutritious protein as well. They offer hearty classics prepared with bison to revive authentic American entrees with classic comfort food like Karen’s “Flying-D” Bison Chili, Bison Meatloaf, Bison Pot Roast or a classic burger. Patrick and I had a great experience trying their Bison Meatloaf and their Bison Short Rib. Heavenly! 

If you haven't tried bison before, I encourage you to when you have the opportunity. It is much more flavorful than beef (not gamey at all) and healthier for you too...

Lastly and most recently, we visited Fleming's Steakhouse for a Friday Date Night. It's a great steakhouse with so much to offer: 


Prime Rib Sunday and Monday
Sunday’s best is Monday’s too! Enjoy a three-course Prime Rib dinner starting at $29.95. Guests choose from a selection of salads before cutting into Fleming’s delicious Prime Rib accompanied with a trio of sauces – au jus, creamy horseradish and dijon. End the meal with a choice of dessert, including an indulgent Chocolate Lava Cake. Enjoy this three-course menu at Fleming’s every Sunday and Monday through February 8th.
