Why do we say the $27 strip steak, on the lunch menu at Capital Grille, is a flat out steal?
We say it’s a steal because it is:
1) 14 ounces;
3) seasoned properly;
4) seared to perfection as the steakhouses like to say (which really means the Maillard reaction was properly monitored over a high heat grill);
4) as juicy and beefy as a sirloin can get.
And finally, the main reason it’s the best strip deal on the Strip is because:
5) the same superior slices of steak succulence costs twenty bucks more at dinner!
Other reasons to love a lunch at CG are those pan-fried calamari with hot cherry peppers, the best creamed spinach of any chain steakhouse in town, and crackerjack service that makes it just about perfect for a business lunch….especially when business is conducted over a sassy bottle of $45 Byron pinot noir — a light and fruity central Cali-coast-er that goes perfectly with a slab of prime, aged steer muscle.
Add it all up and you have our favorite franchised beef emporium in our humble burg. One, by the way, where we’ve eaten a dozen times and never once been comped or recognized.
Our lunch pour deux was picked up by our über-foodie friend Jennifer Curland. Gracias, über-foodie friend Jennifer!
