Del Frisco's Hopes To Make Its Mark As First Restaurant In Pike & Rose

Del Frisco’s Hopes To Make Its Mark As First Restaurant In Pike & Rose

| Published:

The pace is fast and furious at the corner of Old Georgetown Road and Grand Park Avenue, the new road in the new neighborhood rising up at the old Mid-Pike Plaza shopping center in North Bethesda/White Flint.

Del Frisco’s Grille, the casual dining and bar chain that will be the first retail or restaurant spot to open in Pike & Rose, is nearing a Thursday night VIP grand opening celebration.

General Manager Rahsaan Stone is overseeing the work. Crews are finishing installation of a wine cellar, cooks are practicing lunch dishes and suppliers are coming in and out of the roughly 5,500-square-foot spot at 11800 Grand Park Ave.

On Tuesday, Stone gave a look inside the space, which will have seating for about 250 patrons, including a bar and outdoor patio stretching along Old Georgetown Road.

“We want to get in in the very beginning and make our mark,” Stone said. “We want it to taste high-end, feel high-end but without high prices.”

Much of the first phase of the Pike & Rose project is undergoing finishing touches. A crew operating a lift was working on the front of Del Frisco’s building, which will also be home to a Sport&Health club, iPic movie theater, Strathmore-operated music venue and a number of other restaurants and retailers.

Del Frisco’s hopes to debut its “twists on American comfort cuisine,” to the public on Sept. 25. The menu will feature some items unique to the Pike & Rose location.
