The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: Get your platinum cards ready for this over-the-top Chestnut Hill steakhouse that features big cuts of beef, chops and sides. Located just up Route 9 from the Atrium Mall and across from the Chestnut Hill Mall, you will find loads of self-importance emanating from the chic martini-sippers at the bar as well as the VIP business class occupying the booths. Dinner standouts include the dry-aged porterhouse that weighs in at 24-ounces and lobsters as big as five pounds. We can never get enough of the Kona-crusted dry-aged sirloin topped with caramelized shallot butter. Pair the rib-eye with some au gratin potatoes and roasted mushrooms. If you can save room for dessert, there's chocolate hazelnut cake with dark chocolate mousse and hazelnut chocolate ganache. From the massive wine list of more than 5,000 bottles, 25 wines are available by the glass.
