The Perimeter Mall area is getting a new steakhouse this month. Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse is set to open for dinner service on September 19, with lunch service following the next day. This is the first metro Atlanta location of the steakhouse from the Irving, Texas-based Del Frisco’s restaurant group, which also owns the Del Frisco’s Grille in Buckhead. Executive chef Matt Townley, previously of the Plano, Texas, Double Eagle location, will lead the kitchen.
The centerpiece of the 11,000-square-foot space at 236 Perimeter Center Parkway Northeast is a “floating” wine cellar that can be seen from any vantage point in the restaurant and boasts more than 2,000 wines. Inside, expect the typical dark and “moody” steakhouse vibe with leather furniture and oak floors but, if you want some sunlight with your steak, the restaurant will also feature a large patio with an indoor/outdoor bar area.
The menu features wet and dry-aged steaks, with prices ranging from $45 for an 8 oz. filet mignon to $125 for the restaurant’s signature Double Eagle steak, a 32 oz., 45-day dry-aged double bone prime ribeye. There’s also a short menu of Wagyu steaks, including a $160 tasting sampler that features three different 3 oz. cuts.
The restaurant will also have several seafood entrees, including salmon with crab hash and lobster tomato jus, seared Chilean sea bass with crab fried rice and black bean garlic sauce, or a broiled lobster tail that is carved tableside. Seafood is a major component of the appetizer menu as well, with oysters, caviar, shrimp cocktail, king crab legs, and charred octopus among the offerings. As for the sides, expect potatoes au gratin, lobster mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts with smoked bacon and caramelized onions, and thick-cut onion rings.
If the thousands of wine bottles don’t call to you, Double Eagle will also have a cocktail menu that includes the VIP with stirred clementine vodka infused with fresh pineapple, an “Old Fashioned” made with Don Julio Añejo tequila, and a grapefruit habanero margarita.
