Holiday Eating

Ok, so you know how I’m always talking about food……oh maybe you don’t know. At any rate Monday was the departmental holiday lunch. We went next door to Capital Grille. And boy was it a treat. I’d never been there before, but I had suggested it to hubby as a place for one of our monthly night out dining options.

The ambiance is quite nice if I may say so myself. If you want a romantic lunch for two or a business lunch for more, it can serve any purpose and it’s a really chic place. On to the food, the bread was much to write home about, but it was warm and the butter was NOT cold. *don’t you just hate when restaurants serve warm bread, but give you that frozen butte, urgh* Moving on, three people ordered soups for appetizers and the bowl was huge and piping hot. And they gave you just enough time to allow the appetizer to settle before bringing out your entrée. I had the Seasame Seared Salmon Salad with Miso vinegarette. Doesn’t that just sound fab????? And it was really good. Two people ordered the Lobster Crab burger, someone else ordered an entrée sized salad while others had steak. I don’t blame them either, it was someone else’s dime, why not eat up. Everyone was really pleased with their respective entrees.

Dessert was another treat, oh my. I had the cheesecake with fresh berries. Can I say it was beyond wonderful. Just thinking about it has my mouth watering.

Well all that to say, if you are ever in the DC area and looking for a nice place to eat check out the Capital Grille on Pennsylvania Ave in downtown DC.



Peace, Blessings and Laughs
