Del Frisco's sets its opening date

As construction proceeds 24/7 at Del Frisco's Double Eagle, the mammoth steakhouse at 15th and Chestnut Streets, GM Shang Skipper tells me that the first night will be Nov. 25. Lunch will begin the following week.

In other steakhouse openings: Butcher & Singer is up for Monday (10/27) at the former Striped Bass (15th and Walnut Streets) and Union Trust has early February penciled in at 717 Chestnut.
