Del Frisco’s-Strega Liquor License Transfer 

The empty Del Frisco’s Grille location at 92 Middlesex Turnpike is set to become a Strega Italiano by the end of the year. Del Frisco’s Grille has been closed since before the pandemic.

Attorney Trish Farnsworth along with her client Kim Dinsmoore, Executive Vice President of Restaurant Operations at PPX Hospitality and proposed manager of the new restaurant were before the Select Board to approve the transfer of the liquor license

PPX owns the Strega Restaurants, Legal Seafood and Smith Lewinsky Steakhouse and has signed a lease with the landlord of the property. Del Frisco’s has agreed to transfer the liquor license to Strega Burlington LLC. Dinsmoore informed the board of their plans.

“We’ve inherited quite a space. We just want to put our Strega touches on it, and move it from a steakhouse to an Italian restaurant. We’ve got a simple remodel with some new furniture and are looking forward to embracing a new location,” Dinsmoore continued. “It’s going to be the flagship for the future growth of the brand.”

The Strega Burlington restaurant will seat 221 inside with 82 seasonal patio seats. According to Dinsmoore, PPX is looking for a mid-September to mid-November opening.

Select Board members noted that they see the new Strega restaurant as an asset to the town and voted in favor of the liquor license transfer 5-0-0.
