Examiner: The buzz on Perry’s Steakhouse in Frisco
Frisco has been steadily moving up in the news world with the addition of the new Dallas Cowboys training facility, The Star, as well as the corporate giant Toyota moving into the area. The buzz on the street right now, though, is all about the new steakhouse opening up at Stonebriar Mall, Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille. Here is a sneak peak inside, and what can be expected from the hottest new restaurant in Frisco.
The ambiance is upscale. Finely finished wood grains, with a modern twist adorn this lovely restaurant. We are talking cloth napkins, sparkling silver, and spotless glassware nice. The crisp black and white servers pick up the forks and knives as dining continues, and will bring out fresh silver with every plate as needed. Elegant private rooms are available and can either be opened up or closed off to regular diners. There is even a grand piano in the bar area for lounge singing, and private lockers to store your finest wines. Perry’s is definitely a place to wine and dine in style. This also means wear business attire, or nicer.
Pricing goes alongside with the ambiance. Expect elegant prices, with most entrees around $35- $45. Don’t worry, my friends with lower budgets, they have happy hour specials in Bar 79 for you, too. Perry’s happy hour offers appetizers between $3 – $8, and $6 mixology coctails. Happy Hour runs Monday – Fri. from 4 – 6 p.m. and Sunday from 4 – 9 p.m.
On to the food and drinks. Fresh, handmade, everything from scratch with the finest ingredients available is what Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille offers. Here is the dish on what is worth the price, taste, and perfection of execution. Let’s start with the drinks. They have a $10 Pineapple Ginger Mojito that is just phenomenal. It is a little bit rough to drink without checking teeth because it is handmade with real ingredients, and some of those pineapple and mint bits can come up through the straw. Perry’s version of the cult signature classic Mojito is made with Captain Morgan’s White Rum instead of the usual Tequila. This drink is a great standby, and is pleasant to sip while eating most of everything on the menu as it balances with each of the dishes beautifully.
For a great appetizer, if you like fresh tuna, they have the Asian Ahi Tuna Tartare. It features freshly cut tuna which is sprinkled with a light ginger sesame sauce, and served with chip sized crispy won tons. The won tons are delicious, and much larger and lighter versions of the little crispy noodles that people get multiple orders of at a great Chinese food place. This is a lighter calorie dish, and is a great start to a meal for those who constantly watch their middles.
There are two lick your plate good entrees. When paired with their signature Cabernet, the off the menu item Chateaubriand is a really exquisite treat. Three sauces come with this devilishly good treat. Each of the sauces are great to try the first time the meal is eaten. The Roasted Peppercorn, which gives a smooth sweet peppery flavor to the meat, goes excellently with the Cabernet. Their Bearnaise is a light buttery sauce which pairs well with the Pineapple Ginger Mojito. Truffle Merlot is the last sauce for the Chateaubriand, and it has a very rich and mysterious woodsy type of flavor, which goes excellently with a good red wine or even their Manhattan 46. Try the Manhattan 46, and make sure to try the amazing Italian black cherries in it. It is a very powerful drink, and it is so delicious.
The second entree that makes patrons want to scream, “Here! Take my money!” is their to die for Perry’s Famous Pork Chop. This carmelized piece of culinary heaven melts in your mouth. Pricing on it might seem like a lot for a pork chop, but whoa momma! It is seven fingers stacked high, and big enough to share with a cool date, if you still want to after the first bite that is. Not only is it ginormous, but it is slow roasted, carmelized, and then they top it with a delicate lip smacking herb-garlic butter and carve it for you at your table. Warning, you might need a spare pair of one inch larger sized pants if you attempt to eat it all in one meal.
The desserts have not been attempted yet, but word on the rumor mill says that the Nutty D’Angelo is fabulous. Perry’s Restaurant opens on Monday.
