As we were walking along Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, we randomly decided to visit Del Frisco’s Grille — which has some 24 locations throughout the country.
Even though we had already experienced a few misses that afternoon, because our waitress claimed it was the restaurant’s “most popular” dessert, we decided to live dangerously, and ended our meal with “COCONUT CREAM PIE” — white chocolate shavings (1660 calories; $11.50).
But, alas, we found this dish monotonous tasting as it was monochromatic.
The custardy pie was topped with two scoops of a dense whipped cream, and, amazingly, it all lacked sufficient depth and sweetness. It just was.
And given what it was, (a flavorless clump of empty calories and artery-clogging cholesterol), we assigned this murderous dish an “F.”
While the intake figures will certainly vary, (depending on a number of different variables), the “average” woman needs about 2000 calories per day to maintain, and 1500 calories to lose one pound of weight per week. An “average” man needs 2500 calories to maintain, and 2000 to lose one pound of weight per week. At 1660 (whopping) calories, this dessert is pretty much “it” for the day .... (Because it ain’t worth it, I’d pass on this one.)
