Esquire Grill Restaurant Review

: Whether for a power lunch or celebratory dinner, Esquire Grill is a good bet for those looking to impress. Steps from the State Capitol, it is located on a busy pedestrian mall in the heart of downtown. Patrons can rub elbows with legislators and other political bigwigs while sipping a cocktail at the bar, or see and be seen on the shaded outdoor patio. The ambience is upscale and service attentive. The American-themed menu features fish, poultry, pasta and steaks. Starters include oysters on the half shell with Champagne mignonette and crispy pork belly with a spicy soy glaze. Mains include oven-roasted chicken with mushrooms and peas, and a grilled flat-iron steak with risotto verde and trumpet mushrooms.
