Steaks, glorious steaks. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes from a mammoth 24-ounce dry aged porterhouse to a more petite sized sliced filet mignon. But you can find them all at The Capital Grille at the Time-Life Building in New York City. Located just steps from Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center (yes, the ice skating has already begun), this bustling two-story location is central to all great things New York.
Sip on one of their signature Stoli Doli cocktails, splurge on a bottle of 2007 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet ($174) or go conservative with a sampling of Kendall Jackson’s Grand Reserve Cabernet for $65 and pair it all up with a sampling of the uber fresh shrimp cocktail and creamy lobster bisque chock full with chunks of fresh lobster meat. Moving right along, the flavor-filled, bone-in Kona coffee crusted dry aged sirloin with shallot butter is an absolute must here. For the heartiest of appetites, be sure to tantalize your taste buds with the massive and perfectly marbled 22-ounce Delmonico, always cooked to our liking at a medium rare perfection.
Sides here are large enough to share and are served a la carte. We couldn’t get enough of the super cheesy au gratin potatoes filled with layers upon layers of potatoes and a blend of creamy cheeses. A steak is never a steak until it’s paired up with its favorite counterpart – roasted mushrooms. Here, the tastefully season a generous and, admittedly, addicting sampling of cremini, portabella, shiitake and oyster mushrooms. For dessert, round off your meal right with a sampling of rich layered chocolate hazelnut cake filled with chocolate mousse and ganache. Because you deserve it. At least we think you do.
The Capital Grille is located in the Time-Life Building at 120 West 51st Street in New York. There are three other locations in the city, including Garden City, at the Chrysler Center and on Wall Street.
