The Capital Grille

633 N. St. Clair St.
Chicago, IL 60611

Critic’s Notes

Expect first-rate dry-aged porterhouses and NY strips at this classy American beef palace, and consider the intense porcini-rubbed rib eye with aged balsamic. Unexpected: bouillabaisse worthy of a fine French bistro. Clam chowder and lobster-and-crab cakes kick things off nicely, and opulent coconut cream pie caps the feast. Scan the touchscreen tablet wine list for trusty, if pricey, selections. Service is unusually sharp for a national chain.
