Dee Lincoln, who co-founded the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House brand and left that company in 2010, on Friday will debut a new fine-dining restaurant in Frisco, Texas.
The 8,000-square-foot Dee Lincoln Prime will open as one of more than a dozen food offerings at the Dallas Cowboys’ new headquarters complex, The Star. Other Star dining options include Cane Rosso, City Works Eatery & Pour House, Cow Tipping Creamery, Mi Cocina, Neighborhood Services, Raising Cane’s, Tri Tip Grill and Tupelo Honey Southern Kitchen & Bar.
The upscale steakhouse is headed by executive chef T.J. Lengnick, formerly of Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Stephan Pyles, Jasper’s and Shinsei in the Dallas area.
Dee Lincoln Prime also features a sushi bar, headed by Mark Tungcmittrong, who is the co-owner of Bambu and Sushi Rock. Tungcmittrong will oversee a reservations-only six-seat omakase bar within the larger bar area. His more conventional sushi is also on the menu throughout the restaurant.
The dinner-only restaurant also features a wall of tequilas, known as the “tequila library,” and temperature-controlled wine storage room that features 2,100 bottles.
The restaurant’s dining room and patio accommodate 200 guests, the bar 22 and three private dining rooms offer a total of 90 additional seats.
