The Capital Grille in Baltimore

Often called clubby or that it “reeks of power” due to its businessmen clientele, this restaurant seems to prove its clubby characteristics with usage of dark woods and low lighting. The sixteen-year old chain originated not in Washington DC, as the name seems to believe, but in Providence, Rhode Island. Using the same clubby, black-theme as the other two big chain steakhouses (Mortons and Ruth Chris), it seems this chain is professional yet not too stuffy to require a jacket. The steak is better at Ruth Chris, but the staff is much more professional and welcoming than the above two. The valet service comes complimentary unlike Ruth Chris or Morton’s, which can give you another relief in coming downtown and not having to find overpriced parking. The large amount of booths and private rooms caters to the lunchtime business clientele; while a large amount of individual tables exist as well. The entrees are not cheap, and the many appetizers and side dishes can rack up the bill, but there is enough for another meal of leftovers, so sleep (eat) soundly.
