The Capital Grille

The Capital Grille Review

A few blocks from the U.S. Capitol, this New England–tinged steak house is a favorite among Republican congressmen. Politics aside, the cuisine, wine list, and surroundings are all top-shelf. Don't let the meat hanging in the window distract you from the fact that this restaurant has a lot more to offer than fine dry-aged porterhouse cuts and delicious cream-based potatoes. For instance, don't miss the panfried calamari with hot cherry peppers. A second location in Tysons Corner has the same menu but a slightly different wine list.
