Our 3 year Anniversary was this past week and we knew exactly where we wanted to go to spend it.  The newly opened Del Frisco's Grille on Palm Beach Island.  Del Frisco's is located on Royal Poinciana Drive, in the same strip as the Palm Beach Grill.  I have never been to a Del Frisco's before as they have multiple locations around the country.  Del Frisco's is best known for their exceptional cuts of meat, but in keep in mind this is Del Frisco's Grille. Gille meaning it is more of a casual, trendy, American bar and grill.  Del Frisco's Grille offers hand crafted cocktails, a modern atmosphere, and a menu that intrigues all the senses.

Brandt and I arrived to Del Frisco's a little early so that we could enjoy a drink at the bar before we sat down.  I ordered one of their signature concoctions, the Morning After. It had Pearl cocunut vodka, coconut water, lemon sour, and a dash of sprite.  Very refreshing.  To make it a little less sweet, you can substitute the sprite for soda water.

When we were seated we wanted to pop our bottle of wine that we brought.  Del Frisco's has a 25 dollar corkage fee.  Pretty much the norm these days.  If you do not bring your own bottle, Del Frisco's has quite an extensive wine list and you can see their wine selections stored gorgeously near the front of the restaurant.
The Sommelier was fabulous! Our cork was crumbling due to the age of the wine, but she managed to save it!! Lets give a shout out to her..WOOHOO!

All of the appetizers sound amazing.  I can't wait to go back and experience the other starters we did not get a chance to try.  We started with one of their signature appetizers, Ahi Tacos.  Tuna tartare, avocado, spicy citrus mayo in little taco shells.  These were good, however I felt the guacamole overpowered the dish and the main star, the tuna.

Next we had the Wild Mushroom flatbread.  Wild mushrooms, fontina cheese, caramelized onions, and arugula.  One of my favorite dishes from the night.  I would definitely come back for this.  The crust was soft, unlike other flatbreads you get that are thin and crispy.  This one you actually could fold!  LOVED!

We couldn't help ourselves and ordered one more appetizer.  Our waiter raved about the crabcake and it is apparently on every menu across the country.  No fillers in this crabcake, just pure lump crab.  

Since Del Frisco's is known for their steaks, we decided to share one.  We shared the 16 oz. prime bone-in filet of ribeye.  We ordered it medium rare and the steak was cooked to perfection.  Full of flavor!  The steak comes with a potato souffle which I had one bite and that was enough.  The potato was dry and the bacon in it overpowered the potato. The steak however was completely on point. 

All the sides are a la carte, so we ordered the first thing that caught my eye.  Truffle mac and cheese. AHHMAZING!  Just take me to the back of the kitchen,  give me a spoon and I could of ate the whole pot. So good, you have to try.

For dessert, we had their chocolate cake that was a hot, ooey, gooey chocolate cake and served with raspberry sauce and ice cream.  As you may know, my husband is a chocoholic.  He loved this dessert and ate every last bite.  He was in love.  If you like chocolate, this one is for you.  

So by this time that night we were stuffed. Bring the wheelbarrow out and wheel us out!!  We had a great night.  The atmosphere is fun, colorful, modern, trendy, and a little loud.  I know Del Frisco's is going to be the newest hottest spot on the island.  The bar was popping even when we left.  Many people eating and drinking at the bar.  A great spot for happy hour for sure.  For your next night out, try Del Frisco's, you are gonna have some fun!
