The Capital Grille‎

The best of all the chain steakhouses, Capital Grille is a serious power spot. Wine cellars are filled with high-end classics, and the dark-wood paneling, pristine white tablecloths, chandeliers, and marble floors all contribute to the clubby atmosphere. For an appetizer, start with the lobster and crab cakes. If you’re not in the mood for beef or lobster, try the pan-seared red snapper and asparagus covered with Hollandaise. You’re surrounded by wine cellars filled with about 5,000 bottles of wine — too extensive and rare to list. While some people prefer the more stalwart style and service of Morton’s up the block, others find Capital to be a bit livelier. The food’s pretty much the same between the two, though I find the steaks at Morton’s to be a notch better; however, the atmosphere at the Capital Grille is much more inviting. Complimentary valet parking here (as opposed to Morton’s, which charges a fee) is another reason to visit this carnivorous capital.
