Interior of Del Frisco's double Eagle Steakhouse

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse

Los Angeles, CA

PWI Construction was engaged by Del Frisco's, a repeat customer, to build a split-level, high-end steakhouse at the prestigious and newly expanded open-air Century City Mall located behind 20th Century Fox's studio complex. It was the chain's first Los Angeles outpost. The design features custom geometric black and white marble floors, chandeliers inspired by vintage paparazzi lightbulbs, a warmly lit ceiling with a series of barrel vaults and bars on both levels –as well as a champagne lounge on the second level. A focal point of the restaurant is the operable windows that open to Santa Monica Boulevard, creating an indoor/outdoor environment suited to the Los Angeles climate.
