The Capital Grille offers the perfect setting for a dining getaway. This is a chance to forget about the world and indulge yourself for a few hours.
Known for their fine dining selections, dry-aged beef and extensive wine list, the Capital Grille’s has something for everyone.
I was surprised to see the Lobster and Crab Cakes appetizer on their menu as most restaurants usually only offer crab cakes. After tasting the two cakes, I felt the combination of flavors with the big pieces of Lobster and Crab did make the difference! The health- conscious chef added his touch by baking the cakes in the oven instead of frying them.
The Porcini rubbed Delmonico steak nearly filled the plate. It was 22 ounces of pure delight! The rub’s subtle yet interesting taste coupled well with the pricy 12-year aged balsamic extra virgin olive oil.
Another entree, the seared filet mignon was served with lobster tails sautéed in butter, white wine and lemon sauce.
In fact, you can choose your favorite steak Kona-crusted, steak with the Porcini rub, Oscar-style or steak au Poivre with Courvoisier cream sauce.
The steaks ranged from an 8 or 10 ounce filet magnum up to largest dry-aged steak, the porterhouse was 24 ounces.
But there are more selections including lobster, cedar planked salmon, double cut lamb rib chops, sushi-grade sesame seared tuna with gingered rice, lobster and crab stuffed shrimp, grilled swordfish, citrus-glazed salmon, roast chicken and other delicious selections.
Among the delicious desserts is the Classic Crème Brulee filled with caramelized sugar crust and the creamiest custard, cheesecake, chocolate hazelnut cake layered with dark chocolate mousse and coated with hazelnut chocolate ganache, coconut cream pie, flourless chocolate espresso cake and others.
To enhance the pleasures of dining, guests can enjoy wine pairing with their dinner choosing over 725 different labels or the Captain’s list with added value wines at discounts. Whether you are a connoisseur or would like to learn about food and wine pairing, their staff can advise you.
