In what appears to be a start in filling the restaurant void at the Camelback Esplanade, the mixed-use development on the southeast corner of Camelback Road and 24th Street, Del Frisco's Grille will be opening in the former Houston's location on Saturday, June 9.
From the Dallas-based Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, a high-end steakhouse chain, Del Frisco's Grille promises to "take the classic bar and grill to new heights, proving that it's not necessary to spend a fortune to have a great meal." The Esplanade will be the the third location of Del Frisco's Grille (the other two are in Dallas and Manhattan, with two more planned for Atlanta and Washington, D.C.)
So how does Del Frisco's plan to differentiate itself from the competition -- namely, its former tenant, Houston's, part of the Hillstone Restaurant Group, who moved out of the Esplanade last year and successfully reopened just down the street as a Hillstone property?
In addition to its renovated space, which includes a rooftop patio and bar, Del Frisco's Grille will carry an extensive wine list with more than 400 selections, as well as on-staff sommeliers.
In addition, the restaurant will offer a menu mix of steaks, seafood, and twists on American comfort cuisine. Dishes include Del Frisco's signature Jumbo Lump Crab Cake as well as pimento cheese fritters, prime beef short rib stroganoff, veal meatloaf, and chipotle three-cheese mac.
