High Steaks

| February 5, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY The renovation of the old Esquire Theater on Oak Street was one Chicago watched very closely, waiting with anticipation to see what would fill the prime real estate, and undoubtedly, when Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House opened its doors, there was not a disappointed party guest in the packed house. THE SCENE Guests sipped Conundrum and Decoy white and red wines as they entered the remodeled interior, which boasts a brightly lit Esquire sign along the entryway wall. Upstairs, waiters passed potato pierogies, steak tenderloin sliders and cheesesteak egg rolls as guests drifted onto the heated outdoor balcony overlooking Oak Street and the vintage, neon red Esquire sign. Though music by the Gold Coast All Stars almost had us dancing, we ducked into the three-story wine cellar for a quick tour up the winding staircase; afterward, sampling what had to be the largest spread of seafood we’ve ever seen (oysters, shrimp and crab legs, oh my!) was a must. THE HIGHLIGHTS Chicago charity Big Shoulders Fund was the recipient of a $10,000 check from Mark Mednansky, CEO of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, in honor of the grand opening.
