Capital Grille Question

starbucksbrew Aug 12, 2010 04:44 AM

My husband and I are eating at Capital Grille tonight. We have never been. I checked out the menu online, and the kona crusted steak sounds amazing. However, I am very sensitive to caffeine, and I'm wondering how much kona crust is on the steak. Has anyone tried this? Were you able to sleep afterward? LOL thanks much

    I've had it and it is delicious. I could barely taste any coffee however, so I don't think there is that much if you are sensitive to it. Certainly should not keep you awake. But I would ask the waiter to check with chef before eating.

      As we know in roasting coffee beans; the darker, longer the roast, the less caffine,. Espresso, Italian Roast, French Roast etc. all dark roasts have less caffeine than the more lightly, mildly roasted beans. I would suspect a " Coffee Crusted steak would have very little caffeine in the charred grounds. Espresso rubbed Strips are quite flavorful for a novelty taste.

      I've had it and I only drink non-caffinated drinks, no problems.
