Brunch for Dinner- Del Frisco’s Grille

This week I had the opportunity to preview the new Del Frisco’s Grille opening on University Ave in Westwood. I love the Del Frisco’s Grille in Burlington and the Del Frisco’s Steak House in Boston so I was super excited to go try some of the latest menu items in Westwood. We got to hear about all the dishes from Chef Shawn Quinn, trust me the food was as delicious as it looks! We got to try a variety from the new brunch menu, brunch for dinner is fantastic and we should all start doing brunch on Friday nights!

We started with Nonna’s Cinnamon Rolls, these were fresh out of the oven and covered in Bourbon-espresso caramel sauce and toasted pecans. The caramel sauce is made in house and it is to die for! This was hands down my favorite dish of the night, I will literally be dreaming of the cinnamon rolls. 28C69127-2095-40E7-B5F2-3F82F470B279

Along with Nonna’s Cinnamon Rolls we had a smoked Salmon Tower and Bloody Marys! Next up was the Greens and Grains Bowl, filled with Quinoa, Charred Broccoli, Baby Spinach, Edamame, Beets, Avocado, Dried Cranberries, Roasted Almonds, a Poached cage-free egg, and sweet basil dressing. It sounds healthy and normally I would shy away from a salad-ish dish at brunch but this bowl was so flavorful, everything came together perfectly!


Served with the Greens and Grains Bowl was the Honeymoon in Paris cocktail. Definitely my favorite cocktail of the night! AE57D99A-4B4B-419D-A456-9017BBA04F34 Brunch for Dinner continued with Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and Crack Coffee! Chef Shawn was super excited about these pancakes and I immediately understood why, they are amazing! Served with fresh berries and blueberry-maple syrup. BFA3A86E-9330-46F5-A578-3CF3CB231292157FEC63-8CC3-4E73-8F67-97AB33A68791If you’re more of a savory brunch person than a sweet brunch person the next two dishes are right up your alley. Eggs in Purgatory, and Braised Shot Rib Hash. I tend to go for savoy dishes over sweet dishes at brunch, if I was having brunch here for the first time I would probably go for the Eggs in Purgatory. Poached cage-free eggs, roasted tomato pepper sauce, avocado flatbread, baby arugula, feta, and lemon vinaigrette. Whats not to love? The Short Rib Hash had two sunny side up eggs served on top with a Bordelaise sauce.66274CCF-B2C5-4D41-9C6C-CC5754BC382262B49828-E184-4544-A0BB-F08E1AAA2D15

To finish out we had Pan-Seared Scallops with baby zucchini and Filet Mignon with charred honey tahini broccoli. I am normally not a steak person but the Filet was cooked to perfection. And lets be real if you’re going to Del Frisco’s you should get a steak. The honey tahini broccoli was so good! We tried a Chianti and a Cabernet, I definitely preferred the Chianti.A80EF62A-0E83-4E30-8ECA-2162C3C994F58765DFF8-72B9-4194-976E-EDF6C582E08DB8429F62-EB34-45DE-996C-C9A89E040217

Thank you so much to the Del Frisco’s team for having me and my friend Jen in for dinner. I encourage everyone to go try the new Del Frisco’s Grille in Westwood, just a short walk from the commuter rail. Congratulations to Chef Shawn and the whole Del Frisco’s team, you all have put together an incredible menu.
