DC's brand new hot spot, Del Frisco's Grille, gave a warm and delicious welcome to Elites and their guests with a night of non-stop fabulous food, drinks and fun times that left seasoned yelper Cathy H announcing, "I can confidently say this was the best Yelp elite event I've attended to date." Monique M suspected it from start: "Once I saw the towering Yelp ice sculpture, I knew we were in for some ooh-la-la razzle dazzle sccchhhwwwwiiiiing! Holy moly, if there was an elite event to attend this summer, this was it!"
Tempting treats saturated this palate-pleasing party. "The ahi tacos," Justin C shares, "were a huge standout, absolutely loaded with high quality tuna and a nice thick layer of avocado on the bottom, finished with a spicy citrus mayo." Meanwhile, Venu N's "favorite item of the evening was the deviled eggs finished with truffle oil," and Emily V "liked the chicken drummettes with avocado ranch sauce the best!" The carving station was not to be missed either. Nishan K explains: "We asked what kind of meat he was slicing and wouldn't you know it – filet mignon. Of course. What else would you put into a slider at Del Frisco's?! Needless to say, it was delish."
With bottomless beer, wine and custom cocktails flowing freely, yelpers took on a giant Jenga tower (tower: 1, yelpers: 0), challenged new friends to games of shots checkers (checker pieces: out, shot glasses: in!), and completely forgot that it was a Monday night. Lucky raffle winners snagged Del Frisco's Grille gift cards and tickets to the DC Funky Fresh Foodie Fest, and everyone scored a gift card for a free burger on their next visit!
Believe it or not, food, drinks, fun and freebies weren't the only highlights! "What really topped off the night," Jess Y realized, "was the service. The Del Frisco's staff members were so friendly, outgoing and hilarious! I can't wait to check out Del Frisco's Grille on a date night!" (We hope she takes us!)
