My husband wants to go out for a great steak dinner for his birthday. We've been to Barclay Prime, The Palm, Ruth's Chris, & Prime Rib. Where would you go? I've heard good things about Flemings. How about Capital Grille? Thank you!

    1. Capital Grille and Flemings in that order.

      1. We love Brandywine Prime, their aged new york strip is phenominal/ excellent. Plus they have lots of other great dishes

        1. I've been to all of the steakhouses several times and Capital Grille is still my favorite. The porcini rubbed ribeye is probably the best steak I've had anywhere. Don't miss the Calamari and the lobster mac 'n cheese as well.

          Fleming's is my default restaurant for business dinners because it is right next door to my office. The lobster tempura appetizer there is amazing as well as their chocolate lava cake. The meat is geat but I think Capital Grille is a notch above the competition.

          I was just at the Palm a few days ago and while it is good, it wasn't too memorable.

          1. Thank you so much. I got reservations at Capital Grille. The lobster and mac sounds amazing. Thanks again!
