Two for the Lounge, Please

Instead of hoping to have an expense account someday, or waiting for someone in your family to graduate from high school, you can now dine at The Capital Grille any night of the week with the national roll out of their new bar menu.

Whether you pop in for a quick bite, or are famished from enjoying several signature cocktails (try the Stoli Doli), you will certainly find a dish that hits the spot with miniature white-tablecloth offerings such as: the Signature Cheeseburger (vidalla onions and bacon are mixed into the sirloin!), Mini Lobster and Crab Burgers and Lollipop Lambchops, to name a few.
