New England Burger at Del Frisco’s Grille

del friscos new england burgerTwo juicy beef patties, an egg, and sweet lobster – that’s the new New England Burger at Del Frisco’s Grille in Chestnut Hill.

It’s an indulgent weekend brunch or weeknight dinner, almost like a portable version of surf and turf, but with the added luxury of a fried egg.

I went to Del Frisco’s Grille on two separate occasions recently, first to try their brunch, and second for Burger Month (which is the whole month of May). I usually associate Del Frisco’s with steak, and it was a real treat to try other items on the menu. The New England Burger was my favorite, but the others we tried were delicious, too.

Starting with the drinks:

del friscos white sangria del friscos signature vip

White sangria and their signature VIP cocktail (a mix of Hawaiian pineapple-infused Svedka and clementine vodka). The VIP cocktail went down dangerously easy – like juice…

And appetizers:

del friscos crab cakedel friscos tuna tacosCrab cake (look at all that crab meat!) and mini tuna tacos (and you know me and my love for adorable food)

Brunch items:

stuffed french toast del friscos chicken and waffles

I got the banana and mascarpone-stuffed French toast, and my friend got the chicken and waffles. We were very happy that both came with crisp bacon slices.

And finally, dinner:

del friscos kale and brussels sprouts saladdel friscos beef stroganoffburger with egg and lobsterKale and brussels sprouts salad with salmon, prime beef short rib stroganoff with pappardelle noodles and piles of crispy onion strings, and this mouth-watering burger. The New England burger also has tarragon aioli and Machego cheese in between buttery bread, but I was already sold on the burger, egg, and lobster combo.

I love burgers (especially the ones here and here) and I thought Del Frisco’s was a solid hit. Do you have a favorite burger?

(Disclosure: Del Frisco’s Grille generously comped both of my visits.)
