I cannot think of a better way to spend your Saturday than with 20 + bloggers and a hearty meal. Last week, I was invited to a Blog and Tweet Boston event at Del Frisco’s. It was not my first time there, but I was excited to see what was in store.
We were greeted VIP style. There was no red carpet, but there sure was that coined-name drink: The VIP – Svedka Clementine Vodka infused with fresh Hawaiian pineapple. In addition, they had their Pomegranate martini: 360 Vodka, PAMA Pomegranate liquor, splash of cranberry.
Del Frisco’s is situated in the Seaport on the harbour. The view is just picturesque.
We ate in the Harbor Room; it was the perfect backdrop for any meal AND it was surrounded by bottles of wine. I mean, can you say heaven?
Del Frisco’s team sure knew us bloggers well. They served family style by table but plated each dish to portion size. That way we could get the proper pictures.
[ Ahi Tuna Tartare // Family Style Portion ]
[Crab Cake: 4 oz Jumbo Crab Meat with Cajun Lobster Sauce]
[Shanghai Style Fried Calamari]
[Prime Shaved Steak Sandwich // Seared Ahi Tuna Salad // Steakhouse Salad]
[ Filet Medallions // Scallion Mashed Potatoes, Thin Green Beans & Lemon Butter Sauce ]
[ Sole Francese ]
[ Harpoon Batter Onion Rings ]
[ Six Layer Lemon Cake // I want that cake, cake, cake, cake…]
I’m drooling just looking back at all my photos. My favorites of the meal included the Crab Cake because of its light airy nature mixed with a spicy cajun sauce, the Shanghai Style Fried Calamari for its sweet chili glaze, the Harpoon onion rings. How could you deny the grandeur of the six layer lemon cake? It was oh so buttery and good. I wish they had also given us a sample of the banana bread pudding!
Thank you again Derek Barragan for a fabulous meal!
