The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: Expect high energy at this corporate steakhouse, where rich woods and oil paintings collide with crisp black booths, geometric light fixtures and an exhibition kitchen to create a cluttered but classy atmosphere that smells of old money and new. By mid-afternoon, the Grille's bar is jammed with movers and shakers, chatting up clients via cell phone or wooing them over martinis. Frankly, the steaks, dry-aged on the premises, aren't half as interesting as the customers who eat them. Nevertheless, there are reasons to give The Capital Grille a whirl, and the wine list would be one of them. Appetizers of smoked Norwegian salmon and pan-fried calamari with hot cherry peppers are good, too, as is lunchtime's fat cheeseburger and dinnertime’s citrus-glazed salmon. And if you think flourless chocolate cake is a been-there, ate-that situation, you haven't tried The Capital Grille's intense espresso rendition.

I had already eaten a very late lunch but my husband was starving – so I planned to order light and my husband was going to go for one of the many heavy protein items on the menu. After my husband ordered a bottle of Cabernet and some fried squid (the so-called Pan-Fried Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers), we placed our orders for the meal. He ordered the Roasted Chicken and two sides – Grilled Asparagus and Parmesan Truffle Fries. I ordered the Lobster Bisque and the Wedge Salad as my main course.

As soon as she realized I ordered the Wedge Salad as my main course, our server was visibly miffed. Apparently, she thought I was a “cheap dateâ€
