New Lunch Menu at Del Frisco's Grille

          I've been a fan of both Del Frisco's and Del Frisco's Grille for a long time (their steaks and crabcakes are some of the best in Boston), and so I was excited to try out the new lunch menu at the Chestnut Hill location. When many people think of a steakhouse, they think large portions of meat and seafood with hearty sides. While Del Frisco's Grille does offer some of these on the lunch menu, they also feature a lot of delicious lighter alternatives including flat breads, sandwiches, entree salads, and "Grab a Pair" a selection of items where you can choose two and mix and match (soups, salads, half sandwiches, etc).

           We started with a few apps including the buffalo chicken lollipops, chips and guacamole, short rib tacos, and a flat bread with home made sausage and ricotta.

           The lollipops were one of my favorite dishes. I loved that they were cut so you could pick them up without getting your hands dirty, and eat each one in a single bite dipped in the delicious avocado ranch.

           The guacamole was light and fresh, I enjoyed this with the chips and the carrots and celery for a more healthy alternative.

          The short rib tacos came with Korean marinated BBQ pork, pickled daikon and carrot, cucumber, cilantro, and chiles. I loved the flavors, and the chiles gave it a little bit of a kick!

         The flatbread with sausage, spicy banana peppers, ricotta, and mozzarella was also very good; it came loaded with toppings and the crust was perfectly thin and crispy.        

          Next was the burrata salad with heirloom tomatoes, balsamic, and basil. This was another one of my favorites; the flavors were amazing and the fresh tomatoes and incredibly creamy burrata were perfect together. The presentation was also beautiful.

          For entrees we shared a hangar steak and fish and chips. The hanger is a new cut, they're offering which is typically the most tender cut you can get. It was cooked a perfect medium rare, and it definitely was tender! Fish and chips isn't a dish I usually order; but I also really enjoyed this. The batter light and crunchy, and the haddock inside was tender and flaky.

          We also tried two desserts, a caramel and sea salt pudding and adult milkshake with creme de cacao, chocolate liquor and vanilla ice cream. I was so full by the time this came out, but somehow managed to eat almost the entire pudding myself!


          I would definitely go back to Del Frisco's Grille for any of these dishes, in addition to the steaks and crabcakes that I've always loved.
