Saturday, (yesterday), thanks to my sister Denise,
we had the opportunity to experience the fare at the Capital Grille,(Newberry St. location). Denise, my wife Beth, daughter Rachel, my future son-in-law, Gregg, and of course, your’s truly, began the odyssey with a livery service pick-up. After a commute of about 45-50 minutes, (adult beverages on board) we arrived at Boston’s famous, or as some bank accounts may believe infamous, Newberry St. We did a little walking, though Gregg and I, opted for a bar stool for a half and hour or so.
Then it was off to the Capital Grille, greeted by the maitre’d we checked our coats, and were escorted to our table for our 5:30 reservation. Immediate attention by the wait staff, accepted our beverage order, and brought to the table, fresh warm, bread, of three varieties, all scrumptious.
Rachel, who had been to the grille, before, suggested the tomato and mozzarella in a balsamic reduction, deeeelicious. Then the soup course, french onion, (raves), while I had the most unbelievable new england clam chowdah, the best I repeat, the best I have ever eaten! Then came the steaks, Gregg and I had the 24oz. Porterhouse, while Denise and Beth, opted for the 22oz. Delmonico and Rachel had the filet mignon. All of which were cooked to perfection. I got the doggy bag, I got the doggy bag. The staff, the decor, the food, all 5 star, in my opinion.
The prices are somewhat, high-end, and the menu is ala carte, which you know raises the bill, rapidly, However, if I didn’t comment on the mashed potatoes, I would be remiss, no parkay margarine here,,,,, Butter, butter, butter, oh yeah, cream, cream and more butter. Mmmm, Mmmm, sinful. Oh, did I mention, I got the doggy bag, I got the doggy bag! So much fun.
Great day, great company, great food.
I highly recommend the Capital Grille,
and Rachel says the Burlington location is terrific also.
