Going to Capital Grille this weekend
I cannot go to Capital Grille without getting a wedge salad and Stoli Doli cocktail. The crab salad appetizer is usually very good and the specials are often excellent. Whenever we go with my sister and brother in law, my sister and I split a Porterhouse steak. That way both get some filet & strip. Plus it leaves us room for the yummy sides.
Must try -
Stoli Doli - martini made with vodka that is marinated in pineapple
Silver Oak Cabernet - Napa or Alexander Valley depending on your budget
Calamari - Its Rhode Island style so it has a kick from the hot peppers
Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with Aged Balsamic - this steak is amazing. The Kona Crusted Sirloin is good too. Also, you should be able to have any cut of steak cooked in these styles if ribeye or sirloin is not your thing.
Lobster Mac 'n Cheese - Not the healthiest side dish but the only one worth filling up on!
The desserts aren't really "amazing" but the Key Lime Pie is really good.
Lobster Bisque is also good with a lot of meat if you don't mind filling up on soup!
Let me know what you think! I've suggested these items to several friends lately and they loved them.
I on the other hand, would rather go for the crabcakes generously laced with lobster, followed by a wedge with blue cheese, a dry aged NY strip medium rare, and the potatoes au gratin. The K syrah from the reserve wine list will do nicely, thanks. Oh, and a cup of coffee as there should not be room for dessert.
