Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:DFRG) today announced two new planned restaurant openings, a Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse in Los Angeles, California and a Del Frisco's Grille in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The locations for the award- winning brands are both slated to open in 2018.
"We look forward to expanding the presence of two of our differentiated concepts, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse and Del Frisco's Grille, in California and Florida," said Norman Abdallah, Chief Executive Officer of Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc. "With these two openings, our total new store openings now sit at seven in 2018, with four Double Eagle Steakhouse's and three Grille's. We are eager to share our renowned wine list, excellent steaks and unique architecture and design with our guests at the exquisite Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, and are confident that the heart of Fort Lauderdale, where residents and visitors are seeking out a unique experience, is a great fit for our Grille concept."
The two-story Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse at Westfield Century City, located on the Westside of Los Angeles in one of the most desirable restaurant and retail areas in the country, is scheduled to open in November 2018. The 15,000 square foot restaurant will feature bars on both levels as well as a Champagne lounge on the second level. A focal point of the restaurant will be operable windows that open to Santa Monica Blvd., creating an indoor/outdoor environment suited to the Los Angeles climate. Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse will be joining Nordstrom, Javier's, Eataly, and many first-to-market concepts in a property that recently underwent a $1 billion renovation.
"Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse will further enhance our flagship developments in Century City," said David Ruddick, Executive Vice President of Leasing for Westfield. "This unique project represents the future of the Westfield portfolio and highlight public art and community spaces as well as feature state of the art technology alongside some of the finest shopping, dining, amenities and customer experiences in the world. Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse will be a welcome addition to these offerings."
Del Frisco's Grille in Fort Lauderdale is also slated to open in November 2018. The 8,000 square foot restaurant will be located in the middle of the Arts & Entertainment District in the bustling Las Olas Boulevard area of Downtown Fort Lauderdale. The high traffic area is a must visit destination, with a popular dining and shopping center for both locals and visitors as well as providing a primary connection to the beach. The new Grille will be in close proximity to many high-end retail stores including Maus & Hoffman Catalog/Outlet and J. McLaughlin as well as various art galleries. The Las Olas Boulevard site features two expansive patios, one running the entire length of the premises along E. Las Olas and the other facing the internal courtyard of the SunTrust building.
