Starting today, the Westheimer outpost of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse has closed its doors for a major remodel.
The closure will allow Del Frisco’s to completely revamp its dining room, according to a press release. The changes to the space will be dramatic, including new carpet, a new ceiling, and new lighting, including a crystal chandelier. New seating, bar tops, and bathroom upgrades are also part of the remodeling effort.
Fortunately for steak fans, the remodel is expected to close the restaurant for only about a week, with renovations to continue throughout the summer. The project is expected to be finished by the end of September, which means that diners may have to pardon a little dust as they eat their ribeyes and filets.
Perhaps the renovations will help Del Frisco’s compete in Houston’s increasingly-crowded steak scene. Thanks to new arrivals like Chris Shepherd’s One Fifth Steak (which won’t be around much longer) and shiny new Japanese steakhouse Roka Akor, old-school spots like Del Frisco’s are feeling the pinch. In its latest earnings call, Del Frisco’s announced that its Houston restaurant didn’t see any “significant” bump in revenues, even as the city flooded with visitors for Super Bowl LI earlier this year.
Del Frisco’s is set to reopen on July 9.
