It wouldn’t be Del Frisco’s without an extensive wine list. The new location will offer more than 1,000 wine selections and have upwards of 10,000 bottles in inventory on any given night. Many of the vintages will be housed in the glass-encased wine tower on the first floor. The rest of the selections will be on display in the wine wall upstairs.

Made of beautiful, perforated walnut panels, the newly installed downstairs ceiling adds warmth and sophistication to the dining room. The next addition to the room will be 138 suspended bronze panels that are part of a custom-crafted art installation that spans the space.

There isn’t a better space for the new Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House than McKinney & Olive in Uptown. The 20-story, 530K square-foot office and retail tower will be the tallest building in Uptown. It was designed by famed Architect Cesar Pelli.

The Johnson Studio designed the space that Del Frisco’s will occupy on the first and second stories. The Johnson Studio also designed Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in Boston and Del Frisco’s Grille in New York City. The new Del Frisco’s will be encased in glass, providing an abundance of natural light and modern finishes.

When it comes to our new Uptown location, we’ve spared no expense and that includes our new state-of-the-art kitchen.

The modern kitchen will be a semi-open space, which means guests will have a glimpse of how our talented culinary team creates our signature dishes. A large glass panel will separate the dining room and the kitchen. The glass, which itself is a piece of art, will begin as translucent and fade into frosted charcoal for a trendy ombre look.

Appliances are slated to arrive in the first week of August, which means we’re one step closer to cooking.
