Just off the phone with the ever-exuberant Dee Lincoln. After 25 years with Del Frisco’s she’s calling it quits. “It’s been an incredible run,” she says. “There is no greater feeling than getting out on top.”
Lincoln and her brother have immediate plans to open a casual spot called The Dinghy at Pier 121 on Lake Lewisville. After that, she plans to cull her list of “great opportunities.”
“I’m really, really, really excited about the wine bar [Dee Lincoln’s Tasting Room & Bubble Bar at Cowboys Stadium],” she says. “I want to focus on doing wine bars in some other stadiums and resorts. I’m looking at some opportunities in downtown Fort Worth and Uptown [in Dallas].
She leaves Del Frisco’s in “great shape” and plans to spend more time with her 9-year old daughter. “I don’t want to lose the balance in my life,” she says. “With all the steak places coming in to Dallas, I’ll be happy to sell wine, cheese, and tapas.”
The Dinghy opens on Memorial Day weekend.
A press release announces:
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House Co-Founder Dee Lincoln will issue a major announcement today at 4 p.m. at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, 5251 Spring Valley Road.Dee Lincoln, nationally known as the “Queen of Steaks” for her role as one of the leading female businesswomen in the steakhouse industry, has been affiliated with the Del Frisco’s brand for over two decades. The Spring Valley location in Dallas is the flagship location of the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House brand which has expanded from Dallas across the nation.

Could “has been” be a clue? Murmur.

As I mentioned the other day in a post about the upcoming SideDish Supper Club, I went to Boston with the Severson (Sevy’s Grill) family to learn about seafood. One of our classes was held on a boat, the Hannah Mary. Our professor and lobster fisherman, Captain Bruce Deltorchio, conducted a demonstration on how lobsters mate. Amy Severson has produced a G-rated version of this “affair” and offers it here. Warning, strong language: “soft, hard, and bulbous,” “Jell-o,” “they’re so big,”and “smell the bait,” to follow.3 Comments »
