The Capital Grille, McLean, VA

The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: This elegant location sports the dark woods, handsome bar and upholstery that suggest an exclusive men’s club, except that everyone is welcome. Near the front door, pause to consider the refrigerated cuts of dry-aged beef behind glass --- this should work up your appetite for the restaurant’s famous, hefty cuts of steak, from the 20-ounce sirloin to the 24-ounce porterhouse. Starters include smoked Norwegian salmon and fresh lobster and crab cakes, and sides round up such favorites as Sam’s mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus with hollandaise. For lunch, there are sandwiches, entrée salads and a selection of steaks, seafood and roast chicken. Desserts include homemade Key lime pie and cheesecake with strawberries.
