DINNER AT THE CAPITOL (GRILLE)

I wore a new purple glittery dress with argyle tights and black patent pumps! #fashion

 

Yes, I know the name is actually spelled capital, but I was trying to be cute and use a Hunger Games reference. Anyway, Andy and I had our belated Valentine’s Day dinner at the Capital Grille (read: we just wanted the excuse to have a good steak). It was excellent! When they called to confirm our reservation, they asked about the occasion. I stated it was “nothing crazy, just a belated Valentine’s dinner”. I didn’t think anything of it.

The food was great! I started off with a salad and we ordered a side of mashed potatoes. I was also impressed with the bread basket, breads of all kinds! But Andy warned me not to fill up, I’m famous for loading up on salads and bread when we go to fancy steak places. I can’t help it, bread is my bread and butter…and so is the butter.

For dinner, I opted for the filet mignon. It was yummy and I wish I could have more! Don’t worry, I did finish my whole steak. So I practiced self-control and didn’t devour the whole bread basket. Would it be weird to take the bread basket home in a take-out container? I wondered this as they took the bread away, and I stared longingly after it.

I was disappointed this wasn’t a singing fish

Our waiter surprised us with a Valentines Day dessert, which we weren’t expecting. We didn’t end up finishing all the dessert, but we tried. As much as I liked Capital Grille, Ruth’s Chris is better in my opinion. Next up, we will try Abe & Louie’s.
