Three unexpected combinations bring pairings to a new level
Del Frisco’s Burger and Bordeaux Wine Pairings will be featured at all Del Frisco’s Grille restaurants. The combinations conjure up an unexpected affair as the 23-unit chain looks to draw increased business this spring and summer. The special menu places premium wines from France side-by-side with Del Frisco’s burger dishes. The Bordeaux wines are sourced from the Southwest French region split by the Gironde River and the White Region.
While burger and wines at Del Frisco’s Grille are available a la carte, guests can take advantage of these specially-priced pairings, served during lunch and dinner service. The Del Frisco’s Burger and Bordeaux Wine Pairings menu runs through July 2.
Del Frisco’s Burger and Bordeaux Menu
The Blanc combines The Blanc Burger with Chateau Pyrat, Graves Blanc (Whtie Region). This Del Frisco’s’ Burger and Bordeaux Wine Pairing features a turkey burger topped with pear mostarda, brie, roasted garlic aioli, and arugula on a toasted brioche bun. The Blanc pairing rationale goes like this, “The silky, citrusy notes of this white Bordeaux complement the lightness of the turkey and the richness of the brie.”
The Château pairing features a Château Tour Bayard, Montagne-Saint Émilion (Right Bank). Del Frisco’s combines the wine with The Château Burger, a 6-ounce house-ground filet mignon patty with goat cheese, tomato jam, caramelized onions, and roasted garlic aioli spring mix. This featured Del Frisco’s Burger and Bordeaux pairing is then nestled in a toasted brioche bun. “The dark fruit notes of this bold, earthy Bordeaux contrasts with the acidity of the tomato jam and the bold flavors of black garlic and goat cheese.”
Also, Del Frisco’s Grille pairs The Légende Burger with a Légende by Domaines Baron de Rothschild, Médoc (Left Bank). The restaurant combines a 6-ounce, house-ground filet mignon patty with wild mushrooms, raclette, black garlic aioli, truffle vinaigrette, and arugula on a toasted Kaiser roll. “This rich, refined Bordeaux is the perfect balancing act with our boldest burger, complementing the pungent, creamy raclette and truffle notes.”
“Our restaurants allow guests to enjoy learning more about French wines in an elegant and lively atmosphere,” said Brandon Coleman III, Del Frisco’s Grille president, in a statement.
