“It’s been a goal of ours for a long time to open a location in Pittsburgh, which continues to grow with thriving technology, services and financial companies. The building we’ll be located in has tremendous character and is our second location to feature private dining in an old bank vault,” said Norman Abdallah, Chief Executive Officer of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group.  “The Pittsburgh and Santa Clara markets both offer flourishing and diverse communities that provide the perfect platform for Del Frisco’s to enter and contribute to the vibrant dining scenes that already exist. We’re thrilled to add these two locations to our portfolio, and look forward to serving these communities for years to come.”

The new Pittsburgh location is located right in the heart of downtown in the historic Union Trust Building. The restaurant is anticipated to open Q3 2019 and feature unique characteristics such as a dramatic staircase that will connect the upper and lower dining spaces. Boston-based, The Davis Companies is led by Pittsburgh native, Jonathan Davis. As part of his commitment to the local marketplace, the company has meticulously restored the 100-year-old Union Trust Building, upgraded the building’s amenities and attracted a prestigious tenant roster with national law firms and technology firms. 

“At The Union Trust Building we’ve blended the building’s historic past, architectural significance and striking beauty with cutting-edge modern amenities, dining and resources,” said Jonathan Davis, CEO and Founder of The Davis Companies. “We couldn’t be more delighted that Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse will be adding their dynamic flair and delicious menu to our landmark building and its thriving downtown neighborhood.”

The new Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse in Santa Clara is located at the Valley Fair Mall, which is one of the highest-performing malls in the U.S. The new location, also expected to open in Q3 2019, will feature two floors with a bar and outdoor patio on each level, providing guests with the ability to enjoy both an indoor and outdoor experience. The location also features multiple private dining rooms, access to state of the art parking systems and private shopping areas to enhance guest experiences.  

“Santa Clara is part of our multi-year development strategy for the West Coast as this will be our third Double Eagle Steakhouse in California,” said Abdallah.  “Westfield is the developer of this center along with our Century City location, and has invested over $1B on the redevelopment of the mall. We are honored to be front and center of such a spectacular retail landmark.”
