Banishing the ‘boys night out’ atmosphere, the I-Drive Del Frisco’s forgoes the white tablecloths and dark paneled walls for a lighter, brighter experience. The restaurant’s modern interior design distinguishes Del Frisco’s from other area steakhouses while still maintaining an elegant, upscale atmosphere. By incorporating patterns and color that emulate Florida’s art deco history, Del Frisco’s adds a well-known and trusted name to International Drive while avoiding the cookie-cutter chain restaurant feel.Original, one-of-a-kind artwork provides pops of vibrant color throughout the restaurant. Fourteen original works of art on display in the restaurant were purchased locally from the prominent LG Art Gallery in Lake Mary.
Del Frisco’s comprehensive, but accessible, wine list features one of the most extensive wine collections in Central Florida. Much of the wine inventory is impressively displayed throughout the restaurant in various glassed-walled wine “cellars.” In the grand foyer you’ll find the signature floor to ceiling wine wall which showcases more than 10,000 bottles.The 1,200 plus wine list can be a bit daunting, but there is always a sommelier available to assist guests in selecting the perfect bottle to accompany their meal. If you choose to bring your own wine, the corkage fee is $30, though with such an extensive list, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a wine to meet your comfort level.
The restaurant is large, with places and spaces for just about any dining option to suit your mood. The two story building is 18,584-square-feet, with over 400 seats. Multiple private dining areas, two bars, outdoor seating and a spacious, upscale main dining room are all open and visible, while still maintaining their distinct space. Even the partially open kitchen provides guests a glimpse of the culinary experience without any of the usual cooking distractions.The large square bar located on the first floor is the perfect place to mix and mingle yet offers a comfortable space for individual guests. Venture to the upstairs bar for a more relaxed, lounge vibe where beautiful cut crystal bottles create a centerpiece chandelier for the room. Whether visiting the restaurant for dinner or just drinks, the signature handcrafted cocktails, especially The VIP and the Pomegranate Martini are worth the visit.
Del Frisco’s is deservedly known for having the finest quality and selection of meats and seafood. The starters and side dishes offer creative accompaniments to your meal. The Thick Cut Bacon Au Poivre with a Bourbon molasses glaze and Braised Short Rib Dumplings are special menu items that are offered at the Orlando Del Frisco’s. The shaved Brussels sprouts, sautéed with bacon and onions, is a delicious presentation of this trendy veggie.Dessert anyone? Though it is hard to save room after such a satisfying dinner, the desserts at Del Frisco’s are amazing. The award-winning Lemon Cake is considered a restaurant favorite, but the Buttercake with Butter Pecan ice cream and caramel sauce is my choice – and it’s big enough to share.
