The Venue: If Chef Tiffany Derry at Private Social needs to borrow a cup a' sugar from a neighbor, the new uptown Del Frisco's Grille would probably be her best bet. The two modern glass-heavy storefronts split the remodeled section of One McKinney Plaza with Del Frisco's Grille taking up 8,350 square feet on two levels of the building.
The Scene: Uptown McKinney high-end crowd. While the grille is a new, more casual concept than Del Frisco's formal steak houses, it's still upscale. This is the second location of its kind; the first opened in Rockefeller Center in NYC this past summer.
The Grub: Assorted appetizers (cheese steak eggrolls, deviled eggs, ahi tuna tacos), flatbreads, salads, "two-fisted sandwiches," steaks, schnitzel, meatloaf, pork chops and salmon. Plus they have an extensive wine and cocktail list.
Highlights: Two bars and an outdoor patio make this a great place to watch the scene on McKinney Avenue. The modern interior and open kitchen is swank and the food looks phenomenal.
