This week is DC Restaurant Week, which is a biannual event where many of DC's best restaurants offer a 3 course dinner for only $35 (and lunch for $20)! I love trying new restaurants, but I went to Capital Grille for the first time 2 years ago and loved it, so I knew I had to go again this year. When I first went, they had an amazing lamb dish, but unfortunately I didn't see it on the menu this year. 
We both got salads to start and I decided to try the Bone-in Kona Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin with Caramelized Shallot Butter with Sam's Mashed Potatoes. My date ordered the Parmesan Herb Crusted Filet Tournedos with Creamy Spinach. I thought the Sirloin was pretty good, the sauce really made the dish. I tried the Tournedos and found them a little bland, but my date said he really enjoyed them. For dessert he ordered the the Classic Creme Brulee and I got a Chocolate Espresso Cake. The Creme Brulee was delicious, but the Espresso Cake was a little too strong for me - I felt like I was eating a block of coffee. Overall, the food was nice, the atmosphere was warm and the waiters were very friendly so Capital Grille is still at the top of my list!
