The Woodlands is alive with energy. Exxon’s move to the scenic community and the synergy it brings is dramatically affecting the restaurant scene. Good news for foodies!
One of the new restaurants to recently call The Woodlands home is Del Frisco’s Grille that just opened on the scenic Restaurant Row at Hughes Landing on Lake Woodlands.
While attending The Woodlands Wine and Food Week recently (a yearly event I highly recommend), my hubby and I popped over to Del Frisco’s Grille for dinner. It’s a great spot with a knockout patio right on the water, perfect for sipping one of their signature summer cocktails. Check out The VIP that features pineapple infused vodka.
The appetizer choices are many and include a tasty fire roasted artichoke topped with lemon vinaigrette and served with a side of parmesan-black pepper aioli, tasty if you’re an artichoke fan. The kettle chips with their warm chunks of blue cheese were decadently good too.
Perhaps my favorite appetizer is also one that could be a meal if you’re not inclined to share—the Cheesesteak Eggrolls—oh my! These were delicious.
There’s a fantastic salad menu, some of them easily an entire meal like the Kale & Chicken salad with its shaved Brussels sprouts, juicy pieces of fresh orange, almonds and Manchego, all topped with a tangy Creole mustard vinaigrette.
Burger fans, these shine at Del Frisco’s Grille…as you might expect. I loved the Green Chile Cheeseburger with its gooey jalapeno jack cheese! We indulged and even ordered the Sea Salt Parmesan Frites.
Save room for dessert. Del Frisco Grille’s version of the coconut cream pie is a showpiece, a tall mound of whipped cream atop the coconut custard center with a dramatic sprinkling of white chocolate shavings.
Del Frisco’s Grille offers a good selection of wines by the glass, and of course, there’s a beer menu as well. The menu also offers some gluten-free choices. Del Frisco’s dinner is open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Their address is: 1900 Hughes Landing, Suite 500, The Woodlands.
