Del Frisco Steakhouse Coming to CityCenter Downtown

City Center Rising Downtown at 9th-11th Street, NW

Last Friday we spoke about the type of retail/restaurants we were looking forward to seeing at the gigantic CityCenter DC project downtown. Last night ANC Rep Rachelle Nigro tweeted a piece of the puzzle:

Del Frisco Steakhouse coming to CityCenter project”

In June Del Frisco’s Grille opened in the long vacant Les Halles space at 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. It’ll be interesting to see if the Del Frisco’s coming to CityCenter will be a proper steakhouse or a Grille. You can see the Steakhouse menus here. You can see the Grille menu here.

  • ah

    I know nothing about Del Frisco’s except what I read in the ads in seemingly every airline magazine ever printed.

  • Does this city really need another steakhouse? I’m disappointed that they are wasting space in CityCenter for this restaurant.

  • I’m curious when they will start rolling out the retail announcements?

  • After a lot of hype, CityCenter will end up being a lot of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • I would rather another 100 steakhouses than another Jose Andres “small plate” ripoff joint. At least at the Palm or Capital Grille I know that if I spend $60 on dinner I will not leave hungry.

  • Sort of off topic, but does anyone else feel a bit ripped off that so much prime space is going to restaurant-repeats? Free markets and supply and demand notwithstanding, how many Matchboxes, Pho14s, Ted’s Bulletins, or other micro-chains do we need?

    To whine for just a moment: I wish that more space in the city was used for a variety of restaurants rather than copying each restaurant and pasting it in a new neighborhood, .e.g the 14th street Matchbox, Chinatown Matchbox, etc.

    Wouldn’t more variety be nice? Ok, you can all bring on the comments telling me how I should a) move to the suburbs b) quit whining c) embrace capitalism, and so on

  • Why do we need to sibling restaurant to be opened within the same neighborhood, just a few blocks from the other? A little variety might be nice.
