Few weeks ago, we decided to try Del Frisco's Grille at Rockefeller Plaza. Not that this place was totally unknown to us as we tried their location in Hoboken and I admit that at the time, I liked the brunch, but less the dinner. When we arrived, the place was packed and we were glad to be seated in the back of the dining room, a space that was less noisy and had a bit more light.

I first ordered a cocktail and settled on the Test Drink No 7, made with Bulleit bourbon, Solerno blood orange liqueur, simple syrup and bitters. It had a beautiful color and was quite strong, but delicious.

We decided to skip appetizers and went directly to the main course. Jodi ordered a filet mignon with some béarnaise sauce. We thought the sauce would come on the side, but it literally smothered the steak!

With my nephew Valentin, we decided to share two dishes and asked the waiter if it was possible to split them in the kitchen, to make it easy to eat: they complied gracefully. The first one was the Grille Prime Cheeseburger, a doubled-stacked USDA Prime beef patties, served with American cheese, lettuce, red onion, sloppy sauce, tomato and pickle. This burger was fantastic: juicy, the patties had a nice char and tasted like meat (I hate when there are tons of condiments with the meat, overpowering it). It was served with some fries that were also quite good.

The second dish was the ribeye. We ordered it medium-rare, but I thought it was a bit on the rare side and could have been cooked slightly longer. However, it was quite good: juicy, tender, fatty with a nice char.

As a side, as we had fries with the cheeseburger, we decided to order their truffled mac and cheese that was good, gooey, with a nice smell from the truffle oil.

Last was dessert. We went for the coconut cream pie with chocolate shavings and the Nutella bread pudding. This time, the coconut cream pie was better: you could definitely taste the coconut and I thought it was a good dessert, considering that I am not a huge fan of coconut and really ordered this dessert for Jodi. The bread pudding was a bit of a let down, being dry and not tasting much of the Nutella...

Overall our meal at Del Frisco's Grille was good. For sure you will not have the best steak ever there, places like Ruth's Chris or Angus Club Steakhouse having better quality meat for similar prices, but I would just go there for the cheeseburger that was sublime!

Enjoy (I did)!
