Gluten Free Menu Options at Del Frisco’s Steakhouse // Seaport

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 4.44.21 PMOn Saturday I attended a complimentary lunch at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House with Blog and Tweet Boston. Del Frisco’s was born more than 20 years ago and embodies the rich tradition of the classic American steakhouse, with impeccable chef-driven cuisine, an extensive award-winning wine list, and unparalleled hospitality.

The Boston location is nestled in the Seaport District at Liberty Wharf. Featuring spectacular harbor views, a sprawling waterfront patio, and a grand circular bar, the sleek, modern main dining room is flanked with deep booths, private and semiprivate dining rooms. The entire restaurant is skirted with jaw dropping display of wines behind glass.

Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by a friendly staff. At the bar we were treated to samples of two of Del Frisco’s most popular drinks:

The VIP— Svedka Clementine Vodka infused with fresh Hawaiian pineapple. IMG_6626And the Pomegrante Martini— 360 Vodka, PAMA Pomegranate liquor, splash of cranberry.IMG_6628

We ate lunch in the Harbor Room, a sizable yet intimate room with spectacular harbor views and patio access (if only it wasn’t 25 degrees out!). The Harbor Room would be great for rehearsal dinners, business meetings, or cocktail receptions. I sat with Katie of Katie’s Boston Cuisine, Lindsey of More Awesomer, Jessica of Of Vice and Men, Laura of Lavender & Lace, Christine of Rules for the Modern Girl, and Lauren of Boston Sweet Tea Party.

We had impeccable service throughout the event. The servers were incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and knew about my gluten allergy before I even got there. I was so impressed with their thoughtfulness and extra special attention they gave me. They explained each and every dish we tried with such precise details, and brought me gluten free versions— again, explaining in great detail what it was and how it was altered to be gluten free.

Del Frisco’s does offer a gluten free menu, but there are many items not listed on this menu that can actually be done gluten free.IMG_6644

We are therefore unable to guarantee that any menu items is free from gluten or any other allergen, and we assume no responsibility for guests with food allergies or sensitivities.

The food was incredible. Each dish was better than the next. I can honestly say I haven’t had food this good in a long time.

Lunch at Del Frisco’s was an unforgettable experience. With impeccable service, exceptional cuisine, good company, and stunning views. It can’t get much better than that.

Disclaimer: I received lunch free of charge, with the exception of gratuity, which we happily paid for the great service. I was not paid for my review and all opinions are my own.
