A glitzy steak-filled restaurant chain from Texas opens its second location in the Boston area on Wednesday, July 18, filling Back Bay with meat, seafood towers, and more than 12,500 bottles of wine. Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse is ready for business in Boston’s Prudential Center (800 Boylston St.), with a sleek interior, a large bar, public and private dining spaces, and a glass wine cellar to house its vast wine selection.
Back Bay’s Double Eagle Steakhouse joins another in the Seaport District, which opened in 2011.
This location features similar attention to detail in the varieties of steak cuts and chops available, with options ranging from prime ribeye and filet mignon to bone-in filet and prime porterhouse. There are also dry-aged and wagyu steaks.
The non-steak portion of the menu includes sides like lobster mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, and creamed spinach, along with seafood entrees like crab cakes and seared sea bass. There are also soups, salads, and appetizers, plus cocktails, beer, and definitely wine.
The restaurant and its Seaport counterpart are members of the Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, which has 84 restaurants in 24 states, including three Massachusetts locations of sibling spot Del Frisco’s Grille, which is slightly more casual, in Chestnut Hill, Burlington, and Westwood.
The group acquired the Barteca Restaurant Group last year, bringing Boston’s two Barcelona Wine Bar locations — South End and Brookline — and forthcoming Bartaco under its purview.
Back Bay’s Double Eagle was designed by Chicago-based Aria Group Architects, which worked to fill the nearly 18,000 square feet of space with seating for 450 in both communal and private dining areas. There’s also a patio for 32 and a central bar with counter seating. The interior has a mixture of stone, metal, and wood accents and finishes.
Del Frisco’s debuts with dinner service on Wednesday, July 18; after the opening, it will operate seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
