You’ve probably noticed that I primarily eat vegetarian, and that red meat in particular is a rarity (pun intended). You also may have noticed that I love delicious things, and I’d eat just about anything on a special occasion.
Well, this was a special occasion.
Last weekend I joined Blog and Tweet Boston for lunch at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, and am so very glad that I did. Not only did I get to fine dine on some of the best food the Seaport District has to offer, I was able to share the experience with some of my favorite foodies, family style.
We were greeted at the bar to sip on a few of their signature drinks while we waited for the rest of the bloggers to arrive.
The VIP was my favorite; tropical, clean and crisp, and reminded me that spring is right around the corner (yes please and thank you).
After wetting our whistles we were led into the Harbor Room, one of four private dining rooms. Surrounded with nearly floor to ceiling windows, we had a spectacular view of the harbor. It’s a darn shame it was too cold for us to use the private patio.
The meal began with three appetizers, and let me tell you, they really set the bar high for the rest of the afternoon.
The crab cake was amazing; moist and very light on filler. Nuthin’ but crab here, baby. The tuna tarare was super fresh and the salty kalamata olive spread was an excellent accompaniment. Sesame heavy for a sesame lover like myself, the calamari was perfectly fried and not greasy.
What can I say, I’m a sucker for Ahi Tuna. This salad was crisp and fresh and bright and gorgeous. Loved every bit/bite of it. If you prefer it more on the rich and heavy side, then the Steakhouse Salad is the one for you.
ENTREES & SANDWICHES
Unless I can call the house made chips an entree, and don’t judge me for eating chips for dinner on (frequent) occasion, the filet medallions win here. Cooked perfectly, juicy and tender.
You guys, just look at these onion rings. Thick cut and dipped in Harpoon beer batter, if you love onion rings like I do, then you’re already drooling. I seriously had to eat them with a knife and fork and didn’t even ask for ketchup. The maque choux corn was sweet, the sauteed mushrooms delightfully seasoned, and the chateau potatoes creamy and smooth.
AAAAAND MORE STEAK
We also sampled a variety of cuts including rib eye, strip, and filet.
Okay okay so I couldn’t finish my plate because dessert was en route. I’m pretty sure it’s bad luck not to eat dessert, you know, like every day. I read it somewhere once.
They make this cake every morning… fresh, “light”, and dreamy… my-oh-my.
Del Frisco’s is participating in Boston Restaurant Week, from March 16-21/23-28, and I highly recommend taking advantage of it. They also offer a prix fixe menu every Sunday.

Sounds like you thought exactly the same way I did about all the food!
I think the entire group did as well!
LOL with one exception (train convo with Kristina)
