From time to time, I am lucky enough on this blog to be invited out to media previews and special events to showcase upcoming openings or menu items. This time I was invited to visit The Capital Grille on International Drive to check out the recent arrival of their new Summer Plates menu. The Summer plates menu is kind of like a “you pick two” deal (you actually get to pick three) for lunch.

Mini Tenderloin at The Capital Grille – Summer Plates menu

One of my favorite items on the menu was the mini tenderloin sandwiches made with fresh, juicy cuts of tenderloin steak and snuggled inside a delicious bun. Another favorite was the lobster roll, a hoagie filled with lobster meat and romaine lettuce. The best side was the truffle fries topped with parmesan cheese. I thought the roasted corn bisque could use improving, as I enjoyed that dish the least out of the group.

Roasted Corn Bisque at the Capital Grille – Summer Plates Menu

All in all, I thought the summer plate specials were a great, reasonably priced addition to the Capital Grille’s menu and is definitely recommended to check out. Though the Capital Grille is known for serving to high end clientele and conventioneers at the local Orange County Convention down the street on International Drive, I think The Capital Grille can also be a great place to try out some great dishes for locals as well, especially considering the new summer plates menu.
