Lifestyle Frisco: Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille Opens 12th Location in Frisco

Lifestyle Frisco

Perry’s “steaks” its claim in one of Texas’ fastest growing cities

TOMORROW, Monday November 17thPerry’s Steakhouse & Grille will open its 12th steakhouse at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco, TX. As one of the fastest growing cities in Texas, the demand for fine dining in Frisco has increased, and the family owned, Houston-based restaurant is poised and ready to deliver under the careful eye of General Manager, Brandon Quinn. The Stonebriar Centre location, at the northeast corner of Parkwood Boulevard and Mall Road D, is the second Dallas-area Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille.

The 10,000 square-foot restaurant accommodates 350 guests in its dining room, Bar 79 (named in honor of the year the first restaurant opened), and exterior patio. Features include a view into the open concept kitchen, a towering wine wall, an island bar, and four private dining rooms for groups and special occasions. Hardly a traditional stuffy steakhouse, Perry’s philosophy of design and architecture is driven by each individual location. Light, airy, modern touches to the various dining areas create a welcoming environment that appeals to both men and women, just like the cuisine served. Using more than three-decades of industry experience, every piece of meat is butchered in house and cut to order, ensuring the best quality.

“From our roots as a meat market, we’ve grown to focus not only on great food, but also on the experience of our guests,” said Chris Perry, founder and owner of Perry’s Restaurants. “The Dallas area has truly embraced us since the opening of our Uptown location in 2010. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces as we join the vibrant, and quickly growing North Texas community of Frisco.”

At Perry’s, guests can expect signature dishes carved tableside, flaming desserts prepared tableside, mixology creations made with fresh ingredients, and live music. While Perry’s is famous for its selection of butcher-fresh Prime, the restaurant is also known for its unexpected steakhouse specialty, Perry’s Famous Pork Chop. This seven-finger tall chop is dried, cured and roasted, then caramelized and topped with Perry’s signature herb-garlic butter.

Bar 79 will accommodate up to 120 guests and offer Social Hour featuring specially priced bar menu items, wines and martinis weekdays from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sundays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Perry’s November opening comes just in time for holiday celebrations. The four private dining rooms each offer a different ambiance, creating a unique, private dining experience, from intimate to expansive gatherings.

At Lifestyle Frisco, we are thrilled to have another fine dining option in the city. Look for our private wine-locker near the front entrance, and we’re sure to see you there!

Colorado Springs Gazette: New Colorado steakhouse is ‘stunning’

2014-09-29_1042

There’s a new steakhouse in Denver that is worth the drive: Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille, 8433 Park Meadows (the Vistas at Park Meadows).

The steakhouse is just the second one outside of Texas – and the 11th overall – for the Houston-based, family-owned restaurant chain. The 11,000-square-foot restaurant is stunning, with an open concept kitchen, a towering wine wall, an island bar and four private dining rooms for groups and special occasions.

Chris Perry, president and owner of the restaurants, grew up learning about meat from his dad, a butcher. “Our famous seven-finger-high pork chop is a signature dish that is carved table-side,” he said.

Your eyes will pop and your jaw will drop at the sight of the pork rib roast. It’s dried, cured and roasted, then caramelized and topped with Perry’s herb-garlic butter. The pork chop costs $36.95 and comes with veggies to share. Of course, you’ll find plenty of beef options too.

On Fridays, the eatery is open for lunch where a smaller portion of the pork chop is served for $12.95 and comes with whipped potatoes and applesauce. Details: 1-303-792-2571, perryssteakhouse.com.

In Good Taste Denver: Tall Tales at Perry’s Steakhouse

in good taste denver

It’s no lie, Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille, which has opened its first Colorado location (and second outside of its home state of Texas), has one of the biggest hunks o’ meat I’ve ever seen served up at a restaurant. Perry’s Famous Pork Chop ($36.95) is, literally, 7 fingers high. It’s cured, roasted, slow-smoked and caramelized and carved tableside into three different cuts. Just expect to take home leftovers. On Fridays, from 11am-4pm, the only day Perry’s serves lunch, you can get a heck of a deal, a slightly smaller version of the chop, with whipped potatoes and homemade applesauce for $12.95. You can also enjoy a burger, pasta, salads and the like but the pork chop is a real winner and that’s a very affordable way to partake.

Perry’s does offer appetizers and shareable plates which I got to sample during a special preview before the restaurant opened to the public. The Asian Ahi Tuna Tartare ($15.95) was deliciously delicate and tender, as you would expect. It paired nicely with a Pineapple Ginger Mojito. Homemade Polish Sausage ($11.95 but $7.95 during Social Hour) served in slices, Jenga-style, with BBQ sauce and mustard and Club crackers is a hearty treat. I heartily recommend having it with their dark, rich, Manhattan 46 cocktail. Yum! Another thing Perry’s is famous for is their Signature Fried Asparagus topped with jumbo lump crabmeat ($16.95). It will turn any non-veggie lover into an asparagus fan and gives those of us who already appreciate the stalks, a nice twist.

Perry’s is not the kind of place you run out to for a quick bite. Linger and enjoy. It’s pricey. Entrees run from the mid-$20’s on up into the mid $50’s. Sides like potatoes and veggies are extra, in the $7.95-$11.95 range but are meant to feed two or more. But the food is very good, the atmosphere lovely (there are four private rooms for groups and special occasions), the bar area, Bar 79 is spacious and the bar menu is impressive. There’s live music every night, starting at 6pm and a nice “Social Hour” from 4-6:30pm Monday-Friday and until 9pm on Sunday. One of our favorites, Ricardo Pena, plays every Monday and Wednesday.

Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille is located in The Vistas area of Park Meadows Mall at 8423 Park Meadows Center Drive in Lone Tree.

Austin Man Magazine: The Best OF AUSTIN’S STEAKHOUSES

2014-09-02_1026

Perry’s is one of the city’s finest steakhouses, and worthy of a long visit. The Rat Pack would feel right at home in this stylish, classy den of meat. There is a lot to love about this place, starting with an elegant bar serving fantastic cocktails and the fantastic menu packed with classic dishes that harken back to the restaurant’s origin as a butcher shop that opened in 1979 in Houston.

You don’t have to be a high-flying politician to enjoy Perry’s. While a lot of lobbyist and legislators frequent Perry’s, walk-in guests are welcome. If you are coming for just one entrée, General Manager Jeff Halford recommends the famous Perry’s pork chop. This gorgeous chop is slow-roasted and smoked over pecan wood, and rubbed with barbecue spice and brown sugar. The rub gives it an amazing smoky, charred crust that protects the ultra-tender, succulent pork. The 32-ounce hunk of lusciousness is carved tableside into three portions: the eyelash, the tenderloin and the ribs.

Naperville Magazine: Suburban Cowboy—Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille

naperville

 

Despite its Texas roots, the vibe at Perry’s is more Vegas chic than spurs-and-lassos, with sleek modern lighting fixtures and rich leather appointments throughout the lively dining area and adjacent Bar 79. Even on a run-of-the-mill Tuesday night, the room was crowded and boisterous well before 7 p.m., suggesting that amid the glut of high-end restaurants now competing for diners’ attention at Oakbrook Center, Perry’s was making an early connection with Midwestern sensibilities and appetites.

As is customary in this genre, and at this price point, service was nothing short of impeccable, with our waiter always at the ready to help us navigate the massive wine list or talk us through some of the noteworthy menu items. Two of these items, the symphony kabobs featuring either several cuts of beef or seafood selections suspended on a wire hanging from a tabletop harp-shaped frame, seemed to be popular throughout the room, with patrons in several nearby booths batting at their meals like curious kittens playing with knots in a shoestring.

Urban Swank: Imbibing with Perry’s Steakhouse & Belvedere Vodka

2014-05-19_1627

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille has been a staple in the Houston community and beyond for quite some time. Although they are known for their steaks, you may not be aware of their extensive cocktail program, which is headed up by Perry’s sommelier and beverage director, Susi Zivanovic. Susi is always on the cutting edge of creating something divine and after speaking with her during a private tasting at Perry’s, I was intrigued by her ability to capture the essence of a cocktail by blending flavors that seemed simple, yet resulted in the perfect concoction.

Houston-based Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille has opened its first unit outside of Texas, in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Ill.
