CULINARY CHOICES AT THE CAPITAL GRILLE MIAMI
Meat connoisseurs have every reason to be happy: The Capital Grille only serves top-quality steaks and even has its own butchery. The meat is cooled and stored for several weeks. This process called Dry Aging makes it mouthwateringly tender and brings out its natural flavors.
Only the best parts are used for Sirloin Steaks. As a side dish the chef recommends sweet cipollini onions, wild mushrooms and fig essence. Or maybe you prefer the beautifully marbled Ribeye with 15 year old balsamic. Porterhouse Steaks come in truly epic proportions, and high-quality minced meat is served as Steak Tartare. Other popular meat dishes include grilled chicken breast with parmesan risotto and lamb rips with Italian mint gremolada. If you are looking for a filling lunch option, you should try the chicken sandwich with Hot Honey.
The menu also features fish and seafood dishes, for example:
- Clam Chowder New England Style
- broiled Maine Lobster
- seared citrus-glazed salmon with Spanish marcona almonds and brown butter
- Tuna Tartare with fresh mangos, avocados and Sriracha Sauce
- sea scallops with asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, parsnip purée and lobster bordelaise.
Before it is time for the main course, guests can choose from a dozen appetizers. How about fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail, grilled calamari or Italian prosciutto with mozzarella? Another delicacy is the smoked ham that gets its irresistible flavor from cherry wood. Or why not try the onion soup with molten cheese?
Besides all the meat and seafood options, the Capital Grille Miami also serves a great variety of vegetarian dishes. A classic, of course, is the Caesar Salad with croutons and Italian Grana Padano Cheese. The Gorgonzola Salad with pears, candied walnuts and cherries offers a unique blend of sweet and savory flavors. Creamy delight awaits cheese lovers in the form of Burrata with tomatoes and aged balsamic.
The Capital Grille’s desserts are almost too beautiful to eat. Choices include Crème Brûlée with fresh seasonal berries, Coconut Cream Pie with a touch of rum, and warm apple crostata. The double chocolate cake is reason enough to stop every diet plan, just like the homemade sorbet with almond biscotti.
The Capital Grille Miami is not only famous for its food, but also for the extensive wine menu: More than 350 sorts from all over the world have been carefully handpicked by the restaurant’s chef sommelier. If you are having seafood, a classic Chardonnay with refreshing citrus note is your perfect companion, while steaks go very well with Californian Chappellet aged in French oak. Many sorts are served “by the glass”, so you can try them first before ordering a bottle. Of course, the knowledgeable waiters are happy to recommend the right wine. For special occasions, the Capital Grille boasts a great selection of Champagnes.
