Located at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Buckhead, just about 10 steps across the hotel entrance is Del Frisco’s Grille. Never having been, I likened it to a Capital Grille, based solely on the menu. However, it is more like the Capital Grille’s younger brother, with it’s more modern style and loud music.

I tried the Kilt Lifter cocktail, and it was exceptional. Made with gin, St. Germain, elderflower, and a splash of Tabasco, it was a perfect balance of a stiff drink with a botanical flair if that makes sense. I don’t recommend drinking on an empty stomach. Where they do remind me of The Capital Grille is the wine selection. Del Frisco’s has an excellent by the glass list at reasonable prices. I enjoyed the $10 Merlot with my steak.

The Ahi tuna tacos (pictured at the top of this page) are a signature item with a generous portion of tuna and can easily work as an entree. The crab cake, while amazing, is smaller, a tasty, yet not overly filling starter. You’ll certainly want to make sure to not fill up on appetizers as steak is the star of the show here.

You can’t go wrong with the Ribeye. Some evenings, this one included, Del Frisco’s has a special of three filets prepared with toppings of bearnaise, oscar and a pork foie gras butter. Although I prefer the flavor of a ribeye over filet, I tried the special and it didn’t disappoint. I must admit, I was pretty intrigued by the pork foie gras butter and it lived up to my expectations. For sides, the Asparagus was good, but pricey at $8 for about 4 spears. The mac n cheese is much more decadent and hearty.

Bonus: they have a beautiful patio that overlooks peachtree for warm spring days ahead.
