Capital Grille – Butcher & The Baker Menu

How do you describe a perfect Sunday dinner? Family and friends, sitting around the table, enjoying delicious food and wine, right? If you’re like me, then that’s a yes!  This idea at Capital Grille menu is based on the family having stopped by the butcher, then off to the baker, to get everything for dinner.

IMG_4680This three-course menu (which is not available at all Capital Grilles) features each diner choosing their own entree choice, shareable chef’s seasonal salad, two sides for the table, and The Baker’s Pie to complete your experience.

This menu is available every Sunday from 5:00-9:00 pm, and is a steal at only $45/pp.  As always, they have a great wine selection to complement to this menu!

 

 

I enjoyed this experience with many other Charlotte Food Bloggers, who also enjoy writing about food. It was a great time with a group I love to catch up with, perfect for a Sunday evening.

_______________________________________________________

First CourseChef’s Seasonal Salad – I have to say that this dressing is something I have to try to recreate: Bibb lettuce, mixed baby greens, and heirloom tomatoes with a Parmesan vinaigrette. (For this dressing, the chef used an apple cider vinegar, but what made it so good was such a finely grated Parmesan, that it just added salt and a bit of crunch. I will be making this dressing in the future.

The Butcher’s Choice: (Each table member chooses one.)

  • The Capital Grille Prime Rib (12 ounces, or 16 ounces for $10 more) – This seriously was perfectly prepared as far as prime rib goes, and was so incredibly tender.  It’s served with roasted bone marrow and a horseradish creme fraiche.

  • IMG_4676Salmon Wellington en Croute – Similar to beef wellington, the quality salmon is topped with wild mushrooms and sauteed spinach, the wrapped in a puff pastry.  Served with a horseradish creme
  • fraiche.
  • IMG_4668
  • Double Cut Cheshire Pork Chop – Slowly
  • roasted to keep the inside tender, this cut of pork has a honey and whole grain mustard glaze, topped with crispy onions.

As we had a larger group, we ordered a few more items to try!

Lobster & Crab Cakes – completely to. die. for.  I could easily have this every single time. IMG_4685

Pan-Friend Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers – This is the Capital Grille signature appetizer. Not only is it crispy, but with a little bit of heat. IMG_4684

Prosciutto wrapped Mozzarella – Once the fresh mozzarella is wrapped, with this saltyIMG_4689 ham, it’s lightly sautéed. Served with crisp croistini and a 15-year aged balsamic.

 

As always, their Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese is to die for. (Who doesn’t love lobster everything?)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other delicious desserts at The Capital Grille include the Classic Creme Brulee (with seasonal berries), Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake, and the Capital Grille Cheesecake (Brûlée style with fresh berries.)
