Capital Grille on 51st. Any good?
Anyone eaten there? I just got a $50 coupon in the mail.
I can find a few mentions but no comment on the food.
I know the CG on 42nd, but expect it & the one on 52nd are the same.
Meaning a place targeted at the expense -account MadMan: meat & potatoes, red wine, leather and polished brass decor -a lot of bonhomie. The place is not bad, but not outstandingly good.
If someone's sent you $50, though, I wouldn't reject it out of hand, but rather go and test it for yourself. (I mean are you really going to turn down a (nearly) free meal?)
We have gotten and used the same deal and just got another. Attractive place, very good food, and excellent service. It's not the sort of place I would otherwise seek out; it seems a bit generic stakehouse-y, even though it is upscale the decor is almost mall-like or like a stage set. I guess that's the chain formula aspect. That said, it was an enjoyable experience and one I am happy to repeat given the certificate. FWIW: Zagat's gives it high marks: food 24, decor 23, service 24 and 92% liked it for that location.
The steak is Ok there. The drinks are as good as anywhere. You can't go wrong with a shrimp cocktail.
