A new restaurant has opened in the space where Legal Seafood used to be at the Walt Whitman Mall. It is part of a group of twenty across the US. Del Frisco’s is not inside the mall proper, but is located outside the southern end of the mall next to The Cheesecake Factory. A friend and I decided to meet there for lunch.
Parking is generally easy in large mall parking lots. Eight handicapped, van-accessible spaces are directly across from the entrance. Although not as close, there are other handicapped spaces throughout,
The large neon sign made finding the restaurant easy. As is the case with many dining establishments these days there is an outdoor dining area, facing the parking lot.
I found a revolving door for the main entrance and a single, street-level door to the left for the handicapped entrance. Once inside there was a large waiting area, complete with seats.
Del Frisco’s is light and open, with no walls separating the different dining areas. The website describes it as “…modern, inviting…and fun.” The lounge area has a full-height bar, plus some high tables and chairs. The dining areas have booths, and tables with ample space between them. Smooth concrete flooring allows for easy navigation.
Once we were seated we turned our attention to the menu. Its interesting variety made choosing difficult. The website says that Del Frisco’s “takes the classic bar and grille to new heights…(they) use local ingredients alongside new classics…” We asked our server about some of the choices. I personally like veggie burgers, but only if they are made “in house.” When she said they were I decided to give it a try and was very glad I did. Delicious! My lunch date chose a wrap which she also enjoyed. Our server was lovely, the service attentive and professional. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch in a very “up to date” and comfortable setting.
Multi-stall restrooms with a very large handicapped stall are located in a wide hallway to the right and rear of the dining area. Unfortunately there are no baby-changing stations.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.delfriscosgrille.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
