The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: Portraits of important Chicagoans grace the wood-trimmed walls of this masculine, classic steakhouse where dry-aged Prime beef takes center stage. Meals can begin with chilled caviar or flash-fried calamari with hot cherry peppers and garlicky butter. Or splurge on the lobster and crab cakes with sweet corn relish on the side. Among entrées, a hands-down winner is the coffee-crusted, dry-aged NY strip steak with sweet and savory, caramelized shallot butter. On the seafood side, pan-seared scallops come tender on the inside, sizzling on the outside, and over creamy asparagus risotto. Sides are generous; the over-the-top, panko-dusted lobster mac ‘n’ cheese is not to be missed. The wine list is extensive, with more than 400 bottles from which to choose. Desserts --- think chocolate hazelnut cake --- are steakhouse-indulgent. Also located at 5340 N. River Rd., Rosemont, 847-671-8125; and 87 Yorktown Ctr., Lombard, 630-627-9800.
