The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: Steaks, along with power and glamour, are on the menu at this chain restaurant where the suits mix it up with fĂȘting couples, and liquid capital takes the form of martinis and big red wines. At the bar, the clientele is well-heeled and well-mannered: adults sipping adult drinks like pineapple-infused Stoli martinis and nibbling on mini lobster and crab burgers, tenderloin sandwiches, and truffle fries. Dry-aged steaks are generally topnotch; we recommend the sirloin and the Delmonico. We also dare you not to stuff yourself silly on creamed spinach, oysters and shrimp cocktail. All the sides are big enough to share. If excess is your thing, this is your place, though an $18 lunch special (soup, sandwich, side) is a nod to the times. For a classic ending, try the cheesecake topped with fresh berries or the flourless chocolate espresso cake.
